Staff along with Supervisors focused on SWCD promotion and awareness in 2015 by participating in local parades and fundraisers.
The SWCD participates in an annual career expo held at the Verizon Wireless Center. Each year, over 1,200 10th grade students from the Mankato and surrounding school districts gather to explore and discuss careers with professionals currently working within those fields.
The 2016 career expo is scheduled for April 20th.
