Arkansas Congressman Steve Womack spotlighted the manufacturing community of our area at a Springdale event.
The Congressman attended an event at the Northwest Technical Institute on Thursday to help promote the need for skilled workers in technical fields. Womack also took the opportunity to point out how important manufacturing jobs and companies are to our country’s future.
“It’s such a vital part of our economy,” Womack said. “A lot of the jobs that people go to every day are purposed in making things and that’s a major contribution to our economy.”
The event featured an introduction to manufacturing skills and careers, a review of training possibilities, facility tour — as well as fire safety awareness and prevention demonstrations from the Springdale Fire Department .
