The Talent Pipeline has acted as a bridge connecting high school students in career and technology classes with local businesses that offer jobs in those trade skill areas.
Last week, Alamo Group in partnership with the Seguin High School’s CTE director Steve Gonzalez came together to teach manufacturing students the importance of safety and organization.
The lesson came with giving the students a look at real-world scenarios and how they can make a difference by making a few small changes and creating specific habits.
The Kaizen event — as it is called — got the students to think practically and as a team.
The eight-day program is just an example of what partnerships between area business and school districts offer students.
They give them insight, knowledge and skill sets that prepare them for the future.
These connections made in the classrooms can later lead to something bigger and better for the students and for the businesses involved.
