Crothersville High School students recently participated in a career exploration activity at the school.

Representatives from Rose Acre Farms, Cummins Inc., Aisin USA Mfg. Inc., Kremers Urban Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Wal-Mart Distribution Center answered students’ questions about careers at their facilities, job opportunities, what they manufactured and various other career questions related to their industry.
