WHAT: Six students from the Kugluktuk High School in Nunavut will be touring NAIT campus and local businesses next week to help the students decide what career path they want to take after graduation. Students will visit the Welding, Mechanics, Carpentry, Graphic Sign Arts and Culinary Arts programs at NAIT, as well as two local businesses.
