As part of our ongoing workforce development efforts, the Martinsville Chamber was proud to partner with Martinsville High School, Community Foundation of Morgan County, Haggard & Stocking Associates, Overton Industries, and ISCAR LTD. to host the recent Skilled Trades Open House. Middle school and high school students and their parents joined us to check out the live demonstrations and learn about classes in agriculture, automotive, broadcasting, construction, criminal justice, engineering, machining, and more. Vocational pathways available at MHS and career opportunities in the various trades were highlighted.

Did you know that recently, MHS was awarded a $100, 000 grant from the Department of Education to expand into Automation and Robotics? This program will train students for cutting-edge robotic assembly line applications, including repair. At the Open House, we had the opportunity to check out the equipment and tools purchased through the grant. Congratulations to all those at the MSD of Martinsville who are going above and beyond to ensure that our youth have a variety of valuable opportunities as they consider potential career paths. #martinsvilleindiana #stemeducation #careerdevelopment #awesomearties
