McDowell Economic Development Association, Inc.

In an effort to educate middle and high school students on the employment opportunities within manufacturing, a video titled “Made in McDowell” was produced. The video was produced for the Manufacturing Pipeline Committee by McDowell County Government and the Region C Workforce Development Board. The video was filmed and edited by Theresa Strickland and produced by Jerry Broome. The video interviews middle school students regarding their impressions and perspectives of careers in manufacturing. There are substantial misconceptions about opportunities that do exist in the manufacturing sector and this video addresses these issues. The students were surprised to learn about the products and the opportunities that do exist.

The video also interviews manufacturing employees and provides their impressions and reasons for choosing manufacturing as a career opportunity. After viewing the video, perhaps you will also decide to consider manufacturing as a part of your employment future.
