More than 30 Southeastern High School students took a tour of the Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack plant on Oct. 27 as part of Manufacturing Day, which was celebrated throughout the month.
The students, part of the school’s Advanced Manufacturing Career Academy, got an up-close look at potential future careers as they toured the facility’s various departments and learned from working professionals.
“The focus of today’s event was to give the ninth, 10th, and 11th graders the opportunity to really get a feel for a day in the life of manufacturing,” said Lenise McWhorter, Stellantis’ External Affairs Community Engagement Manager. “We wanted to engage them and address any questions they may have about a potential career in manufacturing.”
Alysia O. is a sophomore at Southeastern. She enjoyed the program and called it “educational.”
“You get to see what people are doing, you get to see how cars are really made and how much work has to be put into it,” she said. “I enjoyed general assembly, where they put all the car parts together. That was my favorite part of the tour.”
