North Judson Town Council members received a brief monthly report from Starke County Economic Development Foundation Interim Director Larry Wickert when they met last week.
Wickert handed out a report which described different highlights from January.
One of those highlights included a meeting that Wickert and Special Projects Coordinator Ron Gifford attended with representatives from the North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation. Gifford and Wickert met with Superintendent Annette Zupin and School Board President Sheila Akers to discuss workforce development through SCILL programs.
Additionally, Wickert reminded council members that he would like to set up a retreat in order to brainstorm some ideas for future development. He said that the SCEDF would arrange for the location, the moderator and the special speakers. He encouraged them to let him know what date and time would work best for interested members so they can get it scheduled as soon as possible.
