Penn State Wilkes-Barre recently completed a training program for public high school teachers on careers in the logistics and transportation industry.
This project was a partnership of the Luzerne Intermediate Unit, Penn State Wilkes-Barre and Sears Logistics Services in Hanover Township. Approximately 25 teachers were provided with instruction on careers in this industry and the logistics of supply chain management.
Sears hosted two tours for teachers to see first-hand the work of a major local distribution center, which equipped teachers with the knowledge to develop lesson plans to instruct students on opportunities in this career field.
