CAMBRIDGE – Business and community leaders, local government representatives and school officials gathered June 21 at the new Dorchester Career and Technology Center to share ideas for working together on behalf of the students of Dorchester County.
About 50 people from diverse fields discussed options and opportunities that could benefit students, area businesses and the local economy.
“Dorchester’s Future Is Now” was the brainchild of the Business Partnerships & Adopt-A-School Subcommittee of Dorchester County Public Schools Superintendent Henry V. Wagner Jr.’s, Superintendent’s Advisory Council. Established as an outreach mechanism, the council is a group of more than 30 business, community, government and faith-based leaders. They have met periodically over the past year for candid talk and positive feedback on tangible goals and activities for the future of Dorchester County and its youth.
