Giving students a chance to understand the industry and to see firsthand how it operates, opens their eyes to the possibility of a career in manufacturing.
St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
The student tour was a coordinated effort by MME group and the Vadnais Heights Economic Development Corporation (VHEDC). The VHEDC is a group of business leader who engage with community stakeholders to enhance the economic vitality of its community.
MME group hosted approximately 30 interested students from area high schools. The students were introduced to the world of manufacturing and learned about the variety of highly skilled manufacturing career opportunities. Manufacturing misconceptions were addressed and students were educated on the high paying jobs, degrees and extensive skills within the industry.
After a Q&A session, MME group provided lunch to students and then took them on a tour of the manufacturing plant. One lucky student won an iPad just for attending!
Brian Bussmann, vice president at MME group views the tour as an investment in students, the community and manufacturing industry. “Giving students a chance to understand the industry and to see firsthand how it operates, opens their eyes to the possibility of a career in manufacturing.” Bussmann continued by highlighting the value of manufacturing to the U.S. and local economy. “Nine percent of the workforce is employed by manufacturers. Manufacturing month is a time to recognized the impact that manufacturing has on the economy and workforce.”
