Vicksburg District Partners with We Work the Waterways
VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District partnered with Inland River Ports and Terminals to host a We Work the Waterways event on Feb. 15 at The Jesse Brent Lower Mississippi River Museum. The event is an immersive interaction day to educate high school students in the area on the importance of waterborne transportation and the diversity of career pathways available on the waterways. We Work the Waterways brings the industry to the students; through education, hands-on learning, and engaging with maritime representatives. Over 200 students in the 11th and 12th grade had the opportunity to hear from Vicksburg District River Operations representatives Chris Simms, Gerald Bland and Bert Turcotte how a survey vessel is used to perform channel condition surveys for river navigation. Students from five high schools in Mississippi attended the event.
