We were in the studio for The Valley Business Today with Sally Michaels, Existing Business Coordinator with the Frederick County Economic Development Authority. She brought with her Jane Baker, Warren County Public School's Director of Career & Technical Education and Principal of Blue Ridge Technical Center along with Stacy Barrett with Barrett Machine. We talked about the upcoming Worlds of Work (WoW) expo happening on October 23 & 24th at Body Renew  Fitness & Family Sports Center on Commonwealth Drive in Winchester. Worlds of Work Expo is a career exploration event managed by Lord Fairfax Community College Career Pathways Consortium, in partnership with Barrett Machine, Inc., Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission, Frederick County Economic Development Authority, Winchester Economic Development Authority, and Winchester Wealth Management. Over a two day period, WoW! hosts nearly 3,000 seventh grade students from the region, which includes the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Page, Rappahannock, Shenandoah, Warren, and the City of Winchester. More than 65 businesses showcase equipment, vehicles, and machinery that students climb into, fix, and manipulate. There are also animals students can touch and care for as well as life-like mannequins they might splint and stitch. Sponsorships are needed to fund this great educational opportunity for local students.
