Meeting future workforce needs starts by raising awareness of manufacturing careers at the middle- and high school-levels. That’s the reason why four member manufacturers of the Lawrence Mercer Manufacturers Coalition attended a career-awareness event at Farrell High School this week.

Farrell’s Partnership Breakfast set out to inform local employers about the emphasis on career education at Farrell Area School District, and the desire for employer participation to bring their curriculum to life.

Representatives from LMMC member manufacturers Berner International, Ellwood, G.W. Becker and Wheatland Steel Processing attended the event.

“We always want to know from area employers what skills are needed and how can we best embed it in our curriculum,” said Dr. Emily Clare, supervisor of curriculum and instruction at Farrell.
