FKHS Students to Tour Manufacturing Facilities and Coffeyville Tech Campus

Coffeyville Community College Technical Campus along with the Coffeyville Chamber of Commerce and Montgomery County Action Council are hosting the first annual Coffeyville Manufacturing Day on Wednesday, October 15th.  Approximately 40 students that are a part of the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program from Field Kindley High School will be attending.  Students will be learning first-hand the importance that local manufactures have on the economic longevity of the community.

Activities for the day include tours of ACME, SEKTAM, Inc, and Coffeyville Community College Technical campus.  Following the tour, Aaron Heckman of the Montgomery County Action Council and Stacia Meek of the Coffeyville Chamber of Commerce will be discussing the important role that manufacturing plays in the community of Coffeyville.

"This is a great opportunity for students to see how a product starts at one company and moves to another within the same community thus benefiting families and organizations within Coffeyville and surrounding areas," said Yvonne Hull, Director of Business and Employee Skills Training at CCC.
