Stowers provides answers, industry education for local teachers at seminar

Stowers Machinery was proud to participate in a recent panel for teachers in Knoxville and Kingsport as part of their continuing education hours.img_1081

Taylor Clark, Stowers’ organizational development manager, sat on the business industry panel at both seminars with other local business representatives; there was also a post-secondary education panel consisting of college professors and representatives from the Tennessee Board of Regents. The purpose of the seminars was to allow the panel and teachers to discuss what students need to do to prepare for post-secondary training and education and how that works hand-in-hand with what qualifications businesses desire in potential employees. Clark spoke about Stowers’ ThinkBig program, which trains students to be heavy equipment technicians.

In Knoxville, 15 teachers attended the seminar, and 10 teachers attended the one in Kinsgport.  Most of the attending teachers were agriculture teachers, FFA advisors, and career and technical education teachers that serve the transportation and business cluster.

In addition to sitting on a panel, Taylor Clark also gave the teachers tours of the Stowers’ facilities at both locations.

  • Some of the topics of discussion at the seminars included:
  • Career opportunities in agriculture, food and natural resources available in the region and state.
  • Business representatives discussing the landscape of their specific industry in Tennessee.
  • The stepping stones of a career pathway in terms of training, first jobs and career advancement.
  • What knowledge and skills students need to develop in high school to be successful in post-secondary training and careers.
  • How each industry’s job offerings fit into Governor Bill Haslam’s new mission: the Drive to 55, which is the drive to get 55 percent of Tennesseans equipped with a college degree or certificate by 2025.
  • What industry trends are occurring and how they will impact the preparation of high school students going into post-secondary education or the job field.
  • Advice to educators seeking to build partnerships with professionals in an industry.
