A new magazine designed to promote the benefits of living in the Hawkeye State will be put in the hands of every Iowa high schooler this fall. It’s entitled “Iowa Next: Your Guide to Life After High School in Iowa” and it will go out to every public and private high school statewide.JoAnn Callison is spokeswoman for Iowa Workforce Development, which is designing and distributing the magazine. The effort follows a recent study that found about half of all Iowa college students plan to leave Iowa upon graduation.Callison says students who helped chose the new state slogan “Fields of Opportunities” may also be contributing to the publication. She says the magazine “Iowa Next” will show high schoolers their opportunities in Iowa for careers, for colleges and for apprenticeships.Callison says at least 140-thousand copies will be passed out to students in 450 Iowa high schools in August.
