On Tuesday, local businesses sent representatives to spend the day interacting with nearly 800 students from Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Central high schools at Grand Haven High School’s Field House.

Boomerang is a career exploration event designed to attract local talent back to the area after pursuing higher education. This goal is achieved by showcasing local companies and the kinds of talent they hire.

Participating businesses had the opportunity to showcase their organizations and the various career paths available with students. In turn, students had an opportunity to personally meet, interact and ask questions about careers, education, skills and training with local professionals.
