SKANEATELES — Partners for Education and Business (PEB), an affiliate of the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY), held its 10th annual Manufacturing Careers Day on Oct. 4 at Hillrom in Skaneateles.
The event was part of a Manufacturing Day, where similar events occur across New York state to promote educational and career pathways in manufacturing.
Hundreds of regional high-school students visited Hillrom to tour the facility and learn about the high-tech medical technologies that Hillrom manufacturers on-site, MACNY said in a news release. A panel discussion, “Developing an Urgency to Support Careers in Manufacturing” also was held as part of this event. NewsChannel 9’s Dan Cummings was the event emcee.
Student tours also took place at INFICON and CiTi BOCES in Mexico. Educators, business professionals, and community leaders were in attendance.
