DELAVAN--Kathryn Lieffrig and Tyler Hall already had finished preliminary blueprints on their career paths. However, their experiences Oct. 4 answered questions and cemented those plans for the teenagers.

Read the current edition here:

Lieffrig and Hall were among about 90 students from three Walworth County high schools who participated in the first Manufacturing Day activities, which included tours of local companies and a stop at Gateway Technical College's Elkhorn campus.

The Walworth County Economic Development Alliance and Walworth County Job Center collaborated with Delavan-Darien, Elkhorn and Badger high schools and 10 businesses to offer the event.

The goal was to promote awareness of opportunities available to students, employers and educators. In particular, it allowed students to explore and better understand careers that exist in manufacturing in meeting future employment needs of area employers.

Lieffrig is a junior at Elkhorn Area High School who plans to major in industrial engineering and possibly minor in business at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She said her goal was to get exposed to and broaden her spectrum of knowledge about her chosen field.
