The first annual Kewaunee County Manufacturing Career Day gave area students a chance to see first-hand and learn about careers in the industrial market on Monday. Luxemburg manufacturers N.E.W. Plastics and D&S Machine Service opened their doors to nearly 300 Algoma, Kewaunee, and Luxemburg-Casco freshmen students. Algoma Schools Superintendent and Principal Nick Cochart says the day was an eye-opener for many of the students.
The Kewaunee County Manufacturing Career Day, which coincides with nationwide “Manufacturing Month”, was a collaboration of the Northeast Wisconsin Manufacturing Alliance and the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation.
