LEM Products Inc., manufacturer of industrial safety identification labels, tags and signs, welcomed a group from Colonial Middle School in May. The students learned about the manufacturing process through a facility tour, Q&A session, video presentation and hands-on activities.
“When kids think about what they want to be when they grow up, many students only know about becoming a basketball star, doctor, lawyer or teacher,” said Michael Hess, chief operating officer at LEM Products, Inc. “And while those are all admirable professions, children need to understand all of the opportunities that are open to them, including work in manufacturing. We are always happy to give back to our local community and help schools and teachers educate students on these opportunities. We were happy to host and talk to these bright young students.”
