To celebrate Manufacturing Day, several local businesses and Davie County manufacturers provide a unique opportunity for all eighth-grade students in Davie County.

Students from Ellis, North Davie, and South Davie Middle Schools each tour local manufacturing companies, Davidson-Davie Community College and WFBH-Davie Medical Center – Bermuda Run.

Davie County has participated in National Manufacturing Day through the collaborative efforts of Davie County Chamber of Commerce, Davie CONNECT, Davie County Economic Development, Davie County Schools, and the Davie business community.

Students and staff are exposed to the many outstanding career opportunities that exist in the county. Business leaders provide informative tours including examples of how their employees use math, science, technology, and communication skills.
