“When I was 14, I chose welding as the trade I would study through high school. My junior year I decided to make welding my career because it’s not often you get to turn your passion into a career. Also, I like the challenge of manufacturing—something about making things from scratch entices me.”
— Amanda Reel, Welder, TRUMPF Inc.
“I encourage all of us to expose our daughters, nieces, neighbors and cousins to the modern way of manufacturing and show them what a terrific and rewarding place it is to work.”
—Cindy Logan, Senior Manager of Tobacco Processing, John Middleton Company, an Altria Co.
“I’ve found that “manufacturing” is not a typical word people use throughout a daily conversation if they are not involved in manufacturing. Through my involvement with WiM, I connected with a lot of the school districts in the area that are trying to push STEM.”
—Lauren Kirschler, Operations Manager, CPI Card Group
