As part of ongoing efforts to provide the best place to work in Fort Worth, the City of Fort Worth hosted its first-ever Education Fair last week.
More than 160 people braved the heat to attend the City’s inaugural fair at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex. The event was a collaborative effort between the police, fire and human resources departments.
“We saw a great turnout at the first CFW Education Fair,” said Nathan Gregoire, deputy director of human resources. “It was great to see the interest and enthusiasm of the CFW employees and their family members who were in attendance.”
The fair was for all employees, family members and guests who wanted to explore higher education and learning opportunities.
One such opportunity was the city’s tuition reimbursement program.
“The tuition reimbursement program here at the city is very strong given that employees can receive up to $5,250 a year to help with their education,” Gregory said. “Our hope at Human Resources is that through this fair and the tuition reimbursement program, we make it as easy as possible for employees who want to increase their knowledge and skills through education. Continuing their education helps improve themselves, our organization, and ultimately our service to the citizens of Fort Worth.
