HTM Visit
Ahead of World Manufacturing Day, Indian Lake High School students got a chance to see the inner workings of a world class facility right next door to their school. 
Dozens of ILHS students visited Honda Transmission Manufacturing in Russells Point recently. The young people were able to tour the massive plant that employs more than 1400 people.
The event is an ongoing effort on the part of Honda Transmission Manufacturing to prepare and recruit skilled workers that will be needed over the next decade. In addition to Indian Lake, students from several other area high schools participated in the event. 
During the tour, associates talked with students about the skills necessary to work in each department, including training in robotics, electronics, tooling and engineering. Before leaving, students were able to meet with representatives from several area colleges and two-year institutions to discuss what programs are available to obtain the training needed for a job at Honda or similar manufacturers.
Another group of ILHS students will tour other Honda facilities on World Manufacturing Day in October. In addition, there is a Parent Open House at HTM on October 12th.
