NEWPORT CITY- North Country Career Center recently hosted an event in which students were presented with ideas of what women can do in non-traditional careers. Career Center Director Eileen Illuzzi advised the school board Tuesday that a presentation was made to show women non-traditional occupations through workshops and presentations.
â€śItâ€™s intended to show the possibilities that can be available to them,â€ť Illuzzi stated.
Board member Maggie Griffith applauded the effort remarking, â€śWhat women can do; anything a man can do but better,â€ť as other members joined her by laughing. â€śIf we had more women as leaders in the world it would be better,â€ť Griffith stated. â€śMen like to fight, I do to but not so much!â€ť
