The “Dream it. Do it.” program hosted its annual Manufacturing Day for high school students where they could network with representatives from five of the leading companies in the region — Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing (KMM), TMI, Baker Boy, Fisher Industries and Steffes — on manufacturing opportunities after graduation. Representatives from North Dakota State College of Science – Wahpeton, Dickinson State University, Bismarck State College and North Dakota State University also set up booths to interact with students.
“Dream it. Do it.” includes all of the manufacturing companies within southwest North Dakota, including KMM, TMI, Steffes, Baker Boy and Fisher Industries. Coordinator for “Dream it. Do it.” and Fisher Industries Marketing Director Eric Kittelson said he was pleased to see such a “fantastic” turnout.
“So what we’re trying to do is promote manufacturing careers amongst all of the southwest North Dakota high school students,” Kittelson said. “This was a great opportunity for them to gain interest in those careers, and maybe hopefully try to keep them around and just let them know that there are great careers and jobs in southwest North Dakota.”
