Manufacturing Day is an annual national event supported by thousands of manufacturers as they host students, teachers, parents and local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.
Weyerhaeuser’s McComb mill hosted students from South Pike High School, North Pike High School, McComb High School, and Parklane Academy. The Holden mill hosted students from Holden High School and Albany High School.
Students participated in mill tours and presentations by site leaders and hourly associates. Information was provided about Weyerhaeuser and the careers available in manufacturing. Over 200 students participated in the events held over several days.
Weyerhaeuser hosted Manufacturing Day events for six high schools at
their McComb, MS and Holden, LA facilities throughout October 2018.
