M State to host trades showcase

A Trades and Transportation Showcase will feature four career programs offered on the Detroit Lakes campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

The event showcases the college's programs in Automotive Service Technology, Auto Body Collision Technology, PowerSports Technology and Marine Engine Technology and careers in those fields.

Participants can ask questions and check out their career interests with hands-on activities in each of the four program areas, and current students will be on hand for demonstrations.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with lunch provided.

Area high school instructors have been invited to bring their students to the Trade and Transportation Showcase, but individuals can also attend on their own.
