July is also the month to share your career heritage. Do you have a hard working family member in your employment family tree you would like to recognize? Do you have an interesting career story to tell? Share your story by visiting the R3 Career Center in Kannapolis, 200 West Avenue, 704-216-7201 or at www.rccc.edu/r3/heritage/.
