In an attempt to entice young people into manufacturing careers, Kellogg Community College's Regional Manufacturing and Technology Center is hosting a rotating tour of high school students on Friday, October 7, 2016. The goal is to help stimulate an interest in manufacturing careers.

Groups of students will tour the RMTC and listen to presentations by staff and professionals.

Tom Longman, director of the RMTC, tells WBCK reaching students early is key in order to help alleviate a shortage of workers entering the manufacturing field.

Bernie Kerschbaum, CEO of Rosler Metal Finishing in Battle Creek, agrees. His company will also host a tour of students during "Manufacturing Day" 2016. Click the player below to hear their comments.
