Looking Back on Manufacturing Day 2017!

about 1 month ago


Bloom 206 brought together several South Suburban manufacturing businesses to offer students a first-hand look at a field that helped build America.

On Tuesday, October 3, students from several middle schools across eight South Suburban districts will visited Bloom and heard from several manufacturing companies about the resurgence of industry and what it takes to enter the manufacturing field. Speakers at the event included Behr Paint Manufacturing Managers John Harmon and Matt Smith, as well as Prairie State College Dean of Career and Technical Education Janice Kaushal. Chicago Heights Mayor David A. Gonzalez was the keynote speaker.

After hearing from the businesses, students split up to take tours of 22 participating manufacturing facilities including the Ford Motor Company Stamping Plant, F.H.Ayer Manufacturing. and Do-Rite Die & Engineering. Students also visited Prairie State College’s manufacturing technology machine shop.

Manufacturing Day holds a special significance in Chicago Heights, says Bloom Township High School District 206 Superintendent Lenell Navarre.

“Manufacturing has seen a resurgence in the United States, and industry has always been deeply tied to Chicago Heights,” Navarre said. “It has been wonderful to see our event grow and evolve over the past four years, and seeing so many young people take an interest in industry makes for a promising future.”
