Women, Metals & Manufacturing
By Marcia Latta
Riverside High School students joined girls from five mid-valley high schools at the the second annual Women, Metals and Manufacturing Day at Linn Benton Community College on January 20, 2017.
The event is sponsored by the Albany Chamber of Commerce Pipeline to Jobs initiative, LBCC and local manufacturers to encourage women to explore training opportunities for careers in manufacturing and skilled trades.
Students attended two of five hands-on workshops in training programs offered by LBCC, including Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD), Machine Tool Technology, Welding and Fabrication, Mechatronics Industrial Maintenance and Non-Destructive Testing.
