The Mavens Manufacturing Tour for students is one step towards reestablishing the U.S. as a global manufacturing powerhouse. Event coordinator Meaghan Ziemba has pulled together a vibrant and prestigious group of industry leaders in manufacturing to present on October 22 at Beloit Memorial High School both virtually and in-person.
“The opportunity to collaborate with Beloit Memorial High School will help in our mission to promote manufacturing to younger generations of potential leaders,” Meaghan Ziemba said.
“This will be an exciting day for Beloit Memorial High School students. They will have the ability to hear from and interact with industry leaders in manufacturing from across the country,” said Deb Prowse, Beloit Memorial High School Academy Coach. “The presenters are all willing to share their expertise and experience with our students. They are taking the time to encourage our students to pursue their career goals and are offering them a pathway to do it.”
“We continue to think beyond now and look for ways to connect our students to career, college and community opportunities that offer our students a bright and successful future,” Superintendent Dan Keyser said. “Working with Meaghan Ziemba and her connections is just another way our District thinks outside of the box for the benefit of our students.”
