BROWNSVILLE, Texas (April 26, 2017) -- Over 200 students from six Brownsville Early College High Schools and the Brownsville Learning Academy will participate in an Industry Expo at the TSC ITEC Campus (Center Courtyard) Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 9:30 a.m to 2:00 p.m. The Brownsville Economic Development Council (BEDC), in conjunction with the Brownsville Independent School District, Texas Southmost College and Workforce Solutions Cameron, teamed up with six local manufacturing companies to coordinate student tours of local manufacturing plants and to create the Industry Expo. The goal of this joint effort is to raise awareness of our local manufacturing industry and job opportunities in our region.

Future tours and Industry Expos will be planned to continue the manufacturing industry awareness program. In some cases, students are unaware of what is locally produced and of the variety of employment opportunities that exist in this industry.

Earlier this week more than 200 students toured six local industries in Brownsville for a firsthand look at the manufacturing plants. Plant managers explained the various job responsibilities involved in large operations.
