Big Ed

Wanted: Fluid Power techs

Busy days at OHE! This week we visited Minnesota West Technical College in Granite Falls. Many thanks to Linda DeGriselles, Campus Dean, and Andrea Mills for the tour of their campus.

As we toured their Fluid Power Technology program, we came to a wall covered in job postings. Dean DeGriselles said they receive at least two calls a week from companies around the country looking for graduates of this program, offering jobs with very good starting pay. DeGriselles said she wishes more students knew about this field, as well as others in manufacturing that provide good wages, benefits, and job security.

Manufacturing jobs are coming back and schools like Minn West in Granite Falls are training the workers they need!
