Archbold, Ohio – Inspiring the next generation of manufactures is the theme at the Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) Expo, with events to be held at Northwest State Community College in Archbold, Ohio.
Nearing ten years in existence, the event brings manufactures and high school juniors and seniors together in order to show them the number of great career opportunities available right here in northwest Ohio.
This year’s MFG Day celebration will include three big events throughout the month of October.
HUNDREDS OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS EXPECTED…
NSCC anticipates 400-500 high school students will attend the events in October, and dozens of area manufacturing businesses as well.
The connection is vital to helping employers continue to showcase today’s manufacturing, and help inform and inspire high school students to consider a future career in advanced manufacturing.
“We look forward to hosting MFG Day events on campus, to showcase the innovation of area manufacturers, and demonstrate to high school students how today’s advanced manufacturing has positively evolved from previous generations,” said Tori Atkinson, Director of Workforce Development and Innovative Learning Programs at Northwest State.
