Baton Rouge, La – Turner Industries recently hosted Greater New Orleans Inc. (GNO Inc.), a regional economic development alliance charged with, among other things, the challenge of creating a sustainable plan that connects high school students with employers.
GNO Inc. brought New Orleans public school teachers to Turner to introduce them to our company and discuss career opportunities within our industry.
