Make It In America: Listening Tour at Scott Park

Northwest State hosted a vital workforce development discussion at Advanced Manufacturing Training Center in Toledo on February 19. The “Make It In America” jobs plan, originally launched in July 2010 by Congressman Steny Hoyer, of Maryland’s 5th District, sought to strengthen the domestic manufacturing sector. The “Listening Tour” is currently traveling across the country to hear from Americans on how to best address today’s economic challenges and tap into new opportunities.
