Made in Henderson County
Since 2012, the Made in Henderson County program has worked to enhance the connection between local industry and the Henderson County Public Schools. The program has been replicated across the State of North Carolina and has exposed 4,000+ students to local employment through tours, speakers and events. Of those students, 20% show an increased interest in the field of manufacturing after the tours. The May 2017 job fair connected over 100 students to 23 employers with 79 open positions.
