LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. — Mack is rolling out a pilot outreach program for first and second year high school students to illustrate the wide range of job opportunities in technical and industrial fields.
The Mack School Tour will feature a traveling historical exhibit, one of Mack’s most technologically advanced truck models, and fast-paced video and live presentations to highlight the opportunities in manufacturing companies like Mack for employees with skills and training outside of the traditional four-year college degree.
The School Tour’s inaugural visits are scheduled for two Pennsylvania locations: May 28 at Upper Darby High School in Drexel Hill, outside Philadelphia, and May 29 at Emmaus High School, near Mack’s headquarters in Allentown, Pa.
Approximately 1,000 freshmen and sophomores are expected to take part at Upper Darby, which is known for its strong School-to-Work programs.
“As a truckmaker, we at Mack can see the need for workers with technical training in all facets of our business,” says Tom Kelly, Mack vice-president of marketing. “From engineers and designers to information technology specialists and technical writers, all the way to skilled service technicians and salespeople at the truck dealership level.”
