UPward Talent Council staff members Melinda and Heather ran the refreshments table for the Dickinson Heavy Metal Tours Manufacturing Day event held at Bay College – West Campus.
Approximately 250 ninth-grade students gathered to participate in hands-on activities with local manufacturers, including BOSS Snowplow, Lake Shore Systems, Loadmaster, Systems Control, CCI Systems, and Verso – Quinnesec Mill. A vocation training center – DIISD- was also in attendance.
Events like this would not be possible without collaboration between Bay College, Northern Initiatives, Dickinson Area Economic Development Alliance, Dickinson-Iron Intermediate School District, Michigan Works! and local employers.
