Fourteen students who are participating in the High School High Tech Program from Banks County High School participated in a 3 day manufacturing institute on January 10th, 11th and 12th, 2023. Colonel Atkinson, instructor for the High School High Tech program, delivered the training in an interactive format and the students were very engaged. There was a hands-on simulation that the students participated in as teams. All of the students who attended this training (100%) received 3 manufacturing accepted certifications: OSHA 10, Lean Six Sigma White Belt and Hands-On CPR. These certifications will assist these students with obtaining employment in the manufacturing industry after their graduation from high school. Opportunities at manufacturing sites in their area were discussed with the students and the importance of adding these certifications to their resume was discussed. This manufacturing institute was made possibly by funding from United Way of NE Georgia. Mark Madison, Director of Community Impact of United Way of NE Georgia, attended the institute one day, met the students, and gave them some words of encouragement.
