Meadowlawn Students Take Part In Travel And Tourism Launch 


Meadowlawn Intermediate School students got a taste of the many travel and tourism career opportunities they have in the Sandusky and Erie County area as part of the second-quarter Launch program on Thursday.

Representatives from Kalahari Resort, Great Wolf Lodge, the Sandusky Merry-Go-Round Museum, and other local attractions introduced themselves to students and told them about their careers in the local travel and tourism industry.

Jim Ervin, the owner of Sandusky Segwave, was among the visitors with the third, fourth, and fifth-grade children. He told them about his business that offers guided tours of downtown Sandusky aboard Segway transporters. 
And, yes, the children were very excited to hear about the Segway device – and that it moves along at 12.5 mph.  “Faster, faster, faster,” they cheered as Mr. Ervin sped across the gymnasium floor.


Each quarter, Meadowlawn hosts representatives from different industries to expose children to different career opportunities they might have when they grow up, explained third-grade teacher Krista Hartung, who organized the Launch on Thursday. Individual teachers recruit individuals in the community to come into the school and talk to the children for the event, she said.
