When a high school graduate leaves town, he/she usually doesn’t return. He/she seeks a job and raises his family elsewhere. The student’s departure leaves a void which affects the local economy.
In his wake, he leaves unfilled jobs and creates a lack of future leaders, local car sales, home purchases and the list goes on.
During the City of Conover Board meeting last week, CVCC President Dr. Garrett Hinshaw gave a presentation about a new initiative designed to spur local economic growth.
