MFG Day

Paragon Technologies Engages High School Students at MFG Day Event

Published On July 12, 2017 | By Stephanie Scaccianoce | Education, Workforce Development

On Manufacturing Day℠ 2016, Paragon Technologies invited 35 students from Centerline High School to participate in hands-on, interactive tours of their Warren, Michigan facility. Paragon partnered with Macomb County Economic Development Committee, the Macomb County School Superintendents, and educators with a goal to engage 2,000 local students by opening the doors to manufacturing facilities in Macomb County.

According to a press release provided by Paragon, “This is Paragon’s opportunity to share who we are, what we do, what skills are required to perform our jobs and what careers exist in the industrial market. This initiative is very important to the future of these students, Macomb County, and the long term sustainability of Paragon Technologies.”

Paragon Technologies had such a positive experience with the students that they’ve signed up to sponsor another MFG Day event this year on October 6th, 2017.
