Clow Valve Participates in Investing in Tomorrow’s Workforce Event

Clow Valve partnered with the schools in Oskaloosa, Iowa on April 18 at the Investing in Tomorrow’s Workforce (ITW) event sponsored by IowaWORKS.  Local business professionals in 13 different career industries were on hand to share their knowledge and insight with over 900 students in grades 8-12. Prior to the event, students completed a survey to select the top 4 industries they would like to learn more about. Among those 13 industries was advanced manufacturing.

Breonna Nimtz (Human Resources Coordinator) represented Clow Valve Company in the advanced manufacturing industry sessions. In these sessions, companies talked about their industries, the types of jobs available and the education and skills required for those jobs. Many students in these sessions expressed an interest in careers in skilled trades and manufacturing including welding, robotics, machining and maintenance.

The goal of the ITW event was to show high school and middle school students (our future workforce) the great career opportunities that are not only available locally but provide a sustainable living wage for their families in the future. This was also a great opportunity for students to start thinking about how they can utilize their interests and skills and turn them into a long-lasting career.
