Kim McDowell Reaches out to Local High School Students

McWane team members are actively involved in the community in a variety of ways, like Manchester Tank Elkhart HR manager Kim McDowell.   Kim recently sat on an Employability Skills Panel for area students to answer questions on what employers are looking for in their field of interest.  Kim has also been working with the Elkhart Career Center to build education and training programs for specific positions that are a challenge to find qualified candidates such as maintenance and welders.

Approximately 1,000 students from 16 area high schools took part in the event that was attended by 90 area businesses.  The event was featured in The Elkhart Truth in an article written by Blair Yankey.
