What is AWMA?
The Adams Wells Manufacturing Alliance was founded to promote manufacturing in our communities to local high schools, their students and their parents. We want to help educate students, as well as others in the community, that manufacturing jobs are highly skilled, and that a manufacturing education is important to our community.
We want students and their parents to understand that there are various paths after high school to attain a great career. We want to offer opportunities that may include employment while going to college. Many of our members offer tuition assistance and other types of paid training.
What Schools Are We In?
Students are being asked earlier and earlier what they want to do for the rest of their lives. It's important to us to start a conversation about their futures and further inform them about careers they may not know about and encourage them to check out different career opportunities.
