Putting Logistics on Display: Lake Weir High Showcase New Program
Lake Weir High School students will demonstrate their latest logistics skills next Wednesday, October 11, at 10AM for media and select guests.
The Logistics Career Choice Academy opened in August, offering students the opportunity to learn one of Marion County’s fastest-growing careers – logistics – and how to manage lots of inventory with immediate delivery demand.
For the last few weeks, students have been accepting, sorting, counting, packing, and preparing classroom supplies for delivery to schools for the Tools 4 Teaching program. This outreach of the Public Education Foundation of Marion County allows teachers to shop online for free supplies for their classrooms and students.
In addition to inventory management, Lake Weir students will also use a recently installed forklift simulator to enhance their logistics skills.
Thanks to industry leaders like Auto Zone, Chewy.com, and Federal Express – all familiar with the importance of logistics and successful delivery service – Marion County is quickly becoming a distribution hub for companies nationwide.
Lake Weir High is located at 10351 SE Maricamp Rd., Ocala, 34472.
