LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — It was career signing day in Greater Lafayette Thursday.

Seniors from nine regional high schools inked their way into internships or full time jobs at local business like Caterpillar or Subaru.

Greater Lafayette Commerce Workforce 2030 hosted the signing day at Lafayette's YMCA.

It's all about retaining talent for continuous growth for the year 2030 and beyond.

Educators, industry and community leaders were in attendance along with more than 10 students.

One Covington High School grad says he's glad he drove the 45 minutes with his family to do this.

"I've never done anything like this and it is completely new to me and they keep it interesting," said Dolton Story.

Eventually the students who signed, will get most, if not all their college paid for.

Connecting students in high school and college to Greater Lafayette Employers is the biggest goal of the signing day.
