About Catawba Valley Community College's Create Your Future Showcase 2016
It is the goal of Catawba Valley Community College to show parents and students which pathways students may take at their high school that will then lead into a pathway at CVCC and finally into a career. We would like to educate the public on where advanced manufacturing is today and not where it was decades ago. In this area alone there are advanced manufacturing facilities producing high value products like automotive components, fiber optic cable, and custom handcrafted furniture. Manufacturing has a long and rich history in Catawba County, with over 25 percent of its working population engaged in manufacturing. That’s basically double the national average. There are over 425 manufacturers in Catawba County. (http://www.catawbaedc.org/business/industry-clusters). Come out and join us for this educational and entertaining evening. Door prizes being given away include: Yeti Cooler, IPad Mini 2, and a 1-night & 2 tour tickets to the Biltmore Estate, plus much more!
