The event was held at the JATC south campus, thanks to Jason Skidmore (Jordan School District CTE Coordinator). Businesses attending had the opportunity to RSVP for this supplementary event through the Chamber of Commerce.The event was catered by Isabella’s Catering located in West Jordan, Utah also a member of the South West Valley Chamber of Commerce. The luncheon had 35 people in attendance including members of the SouthWest Valley Chamber of Commerce and local chambers,the panelist, local high school CTE students, and local businesses.The panel included: Jason Skidmore, Director of Career and Technical Education, Jordan School District, Kristy Kemp, Jordan School District Work Based Learning, Rick Bullion, Associate Provost, Workforce & Economic Development at Salt Lake Community College, Rachel Lunt, Former CTE Student, Spillman Technologies, and Taylor Dee, Current CTE and JATC Student. Panelists were given a set of questions dealing with workforce development through CTE courses and their CTSOs to answer at the luncheon. The panel of speakers was a great setup, giving audience members the chance to engage and participate within the discussion. The Luncheon created an environment for local businesses to connect with Jordan School Districts local CTE programs and the South West Valley Chamber of Commerce. The luncheon allowed local businesses the opportunity to see students studying in CTE fields are getting a head start on their career. Through showing business what CTE can do, they expressed interest in finding out more about CTE and how it impacts students lives. Because of this project, Herriman City and surrounding areas are getting information on how to prepare students who are entering the local workforce, and businesses the chance to understand how Jordan School District and the community are preparing students through CTE programs for the upcoming workforce.

HERRIMAN BUSINESS STUDENTS FEATURED ON KUTV INSIDE THE STORY
Three Herriman Business FBLA students, Marin Murdock, Keenan Budd, and Hannah Pedersen, have been working on a project to start the Herriman Chamber of Commerce. They have met with the Herriman Mayor and other city officials, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and several business professionals throughout the Herriman area. From doing extensive research into the community through surveys and focus groups to holding their own board meetings, these students with the help of their adviser, Julianna Wing, have really taken the initiative through this project to make a difference in their community. Because of all their hard work on this project, KUTV 2 news did a feature on these students that aired March 8th at 5:00 PM. In addition to the great publicity, the students are also getting the opportunity to meet with Senator Mike Lee to discuss the impact of their project. We are very proud of these students and how well they represent Herriman Business.
Herriman Business Teachers amaze all with the "real"ity of our classes and curriculum, our personal incredible-ness, and the possibility of what our students can become.
We're more than the core.
