Representatives from across the county recently toured several industries in an effort to bring awareness of the importance of industry to Elizabethtown, as well as to showcase the clean environment that exists for careers in industry. The group toured Akebono, Mouser Custom Cabinetry, Metalsa and Dow Corning on April 14.
The group started with a welcome at ECTC followed by a school bus ride, compliments of Elizabethtown Independent Schools, to the four industries. The all-day tour brought attention to the importance of the industrial base of our area and helped educators and others know the skills needed by students to gain employment in these state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.
