Student Leaders Visit NATCO Offices
The South Shore Marion County Youth Leadership (SSMCYL) team recently visited NATCO offices for our annual Tech Day.
The NATCO Tech Day focuses on showing SSMCYL students the technology and communications services NATCO provides to the community. Students also had the opportunity to explore the various career fields employed at NATCO, including engineering, Information Technology, customer service, outside plant installation and network operations. Each station discussed topics including fiber network infrastructure, Internet and data privacy, aptitude tests and retirement savings.
Kayla Stafford, NATCO Computer Specialist and former SSMCYL student (2009) said, “Tech Day demonstrates what goes into providing a future-proof fiber network and how that technology can keep these students’ talent here in our local communities.” One student said her favorite station was, “where we learned about wires; it’s an amazing process.” Another student added, “There is a lot [more] that goes into Internet access than typing in the WiFi password.” We’re excited to see where SSMCYL takes this year’s cohort.
