Businesses Engagement with Students Continues in Bremen

 
One of the most pressing needs for employers in Marshall County and Indiana is access to a skilled workforce. To meet this need, the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation is taking steps to engage the youth with area businesses and Bremen Public Schools. This goal of reaching out to students is resonating in Bremen where on October 10th, over 490 high school students participated in Manufacturing Day.
 
This is a national program that gives students a unique opportunity to learn more about a field that often goes overlooked. Around 120 seniors and 140 freshmen toured Southwire, Nisco, Bremen Castings Inc., and Indiana Carton Company Inc. In addition, 110 juniors visited Universal Bearings, Precision Painting & Interiors, Better Way Products, and Digger Specialties Inc. Finally, 120 sophomores visited Bremen Town Hall, Bremen History Center, Bremen’s Train Depot Museum, and the Sunnyside Park water plant to learn more about their town. These tours gave students the chance to see the day-to-day operations of businesses in their community.
