  • Diamond Oaks Career Campus      
  • Greene County Career Center

Seven member companies sponsored bays and sent representatives to meet with the students:

  • A&B Printing
  • Fleet Graphics, Inc.
  • INNOMARK Communications
  • Olberding Brand Family
  • Roberds Converting
  • Think Patented
  • United Direct Solutions

Students were so eager to meet the participating member companies that golf balls would sometimes go unhit for an opportunity to connect with potential employers and get insights on the industry. After changing bays every 15 minutes to meet with everyone, the students still secured the victory over the members with a score of 413 to 392. Thank you to all of our sponsors and participating companies. The students will not forget this incredible evening of networking and fun!
