Elkhart County, Indiana – Starting Monday, October 2 and continuing through Wednesday, October 11, 2017, the second annual Elkhart County Manufacturing Days will provide approximately 1922 8th grade students the opportunity to visit local manufacturers to explore the diverse education and career path ways available today in manufacturing. This year, all ten middle schools in Elkhart County are participating in this event, including, Bethany, Concord, Fairfield, Goshen, Jim town, North Side, Northridge, Northwood, Pierre Moran, and West Side. This explosive growth of this event spurred the creation of a new curriculum collaboratively created by Elkhart County school’s representatives for the student’s continued education of the Manufacturing Industry. Parent Events will also be held throughout Elkhart County after the company visits in October at each of the participating middle schools. The Parent Events will provide the opportunity to educate parent and families on the diverse career and financial opportunities available in Elkhart County’s manufacturing facilities.
