Students touring Beatrice-area businesses on Manufacturing Day
6 Oct 2021
BEATRICE - It’s Manufacturing Day….and students from Beatrice and Freeman Public Schools will be able to get a close-up look at four local businesses…..Rare Earth Salts, Precise Fabrication, Neapco and Landmark Snacks.
"They're excited. They want to get students in the doors and see what they have to offer. With last year, not having one...it's just a great opportunity to get more kids in this year." Heidi McClintock is Marketing Director for NGage….Gage Area Growth Enterprise. She says over 60 students are expected to participate throughout the day….in an event that will also be held next Wednesday with Diller-Odell students, and possibly a second area school.
Executive Director of NGage, Trevor Lee says there’s a lot of opportunities with the local manufacturing base.
