Local Manufacturing Businesses
Arrowhead students and parents recently joined the Arrowhead School District staff, Waukesha County Business Alliance, and Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce for a day of touring area manufacturing plants. Students and parents had the chance to learn about various careers in Manufacturing, see products that are made in Waukesha County and learn about the skills needed for a manufacturing career. The tours included stops at Waukesha County Technical College - School of Applied Technologies, GE Energy, Waukesha gas engines, DUECO, Inc., and MetalTek International.
The event was coordinated by Tom Whelan, Arrowhead technology and engineering department coordinator, and Mary Baer, Waukesha County Business Alliance. The purpose of Schools2Skills is to inspire students, parents and educators to learn more about manufacturing careers available in Waukesha County, including career paths, salaries and the education required to succeed in today’s manufacturing environment.
