On October 2, 2018, Mayor David A. Gonzalez was the keynote speaker for Bloom’s celebration of National Manufacturing Day. During his remarks, Mayor Gonzalez encouraged students to embrace the opportunities available to them to explore careers in the manufacturing field.
“As a student in this new decade of manufacturing, you need to take advantage of the tools you have in front of you through your education to learn and train to succeed in a manufacturing career. Chicago Heights is poised for this emerging decade of new manufacturing. This is who we are: we create, we innovate, we build. We do it together. And as a student in this new decade, you have the tools in front of you through education to take advantage of these opportunities to learn and train to succeed in manufacturing careers.”
Students also heard from local manufacturers, participated in local industry tours and visited Prairie State College Technology Center to learn about educational opportunities in the manufacturing field.
