9,000 Connecticut high school students graduate every year who are neither going to college nor into the military, and this is a pool that the industry should tap into through high school manufacturing pathways programs.
According to Marco Famiglietti, CPS Asst. Superintendent, “Local advanced manufacturers have expressed the need for a workforce that has a strong work ethic and the ability to work collaboratively, problem-solve, and think creatively. These skills are in direct alignment with Clinton Public Schools Foundation Skills and Competencies which are the core of the educational experience for a Morgan School graduate.”
Asst. Superintendent Famiglietti will lead a panel discussion with local and state experts, including Colin Cooper, State Chief Manufacturing Officer and former owner of Whitcraft Aerospace (Ashford, CT); Oliver Bausch, President, Bausch Advanced Technologies Group (Clinton CT); Phil Williams, President, Kenyon International, Inc. (Clinton, CT); Gus Kellogg, Chief Operating Officer, Roper Thermals, (Clinton CT); and Mark Richards, Partner, Preferred Foam Products, LLC, (Clinton, CT). The panel will also include an employed Morgan graduate.
The presentation will include company tours videos, an overview of Clinton Public Schools and Clinton Manufacturing Coalition initiatives, high school graduate interviews, information about job shadowing, internships, apprenticeships and career opportunities, and will be followed by a Q&A.
Some Morgan students may receive credit for attending the information session. Students should ask Guidance for details. Eliot students and parents are also encouraged to attend.
