Carmeuse Savage highlights career opportunities in trades and industry
The Carmeuse Savage Operation, MN, recently hosted a visit from the Boys & Girls Club of the Twin Cities in Saint Paul. The 15-strong group of young people, who were aged between 14 and 18, were treated to a tour of the site during which they learned what Carmeuse does, the company’s values, and possible future career opportunities.
“The visit provided a great opportunity to teach the children how Carmeuse contributes to the items they use in their everyday life, as well as giving them insight into career options outside of a two or four-year degree, or technical degree,” said Letha Carriger, Human Resources at the Savage plant. “This included our apprenticeship and Penn Foster programs.”
At the end of the day, the young people went home with swag bags filled with water bottles, sticky notes, pens, gators, stress rock, hand sanitizer, and bag clips—and hopefully a new perspective on possible future opportunities and career paths.
The visit was supported by the Savage plant leadership team, including Robert Bergan and Adam Ferrell from the maintenance team, Mark Muller, Service Operations Manager, and Matt Gower, Area Operations Manager.
