Classes from Malvern High School and Cambridge Middle School receive interactive tours and presentations  Cambridge, Ohio – May 19, 2010 – On May 6, Edgetech I.

G. and LMI Custom Mixing once again opened their doors to local Middle School and High School Students, introducing the next generation to career possibilities and world-class manufacturing processes.In total, approximately 70 students from Malvern High School and Cambridge Middle School toured the facilities and received interactive presentations from the companies’ business professionals.
“Our teams always enjoy the opportunity to reach out to the community and to give students an idea of what types of employment opportunities there are locally,” said Heather Crews, human resources, Edgetech I.G. “They get the opportunity to see people working in a team environment and how we all depend upon each other to make the businesses successful. When they leave, I hope they are inspired to talk to teachers, parents and guidance counselors about their career options.”
From Malvern High School, approximately 30 students from Falon Jones’s senior chemistry class visited LMI Custom Mixing, which is a sister company to Edgetech and located in an adjacent facility. Carol Best, office manager, coordinated the tours, while Jim Nixon, LMI’s general manager, provided a presentation on the uses of rubber in everyday life. Other tour guides from LMI included Nick Dry, maintenance and engineering manager, and Natalie Brown, quality engineer. 
Cambridge Middle School students received a full tour of Edgetech’s 476,000 square-foot facility and presentation on topics including continuous improvement, safety, human resources, health and wellness, and more.
“All of the kids asked a lot of great questions from the product to how businesses are run,” Crews said. “When we asked the Middle School students if any of them knew what they wanted to do for a living, we had a lot of in-depth answers; it showed that the students already wanted to get prepared for what the future brings.”
Presenters and tour guides from Edgetech included Vince Warne, director of quality assurance, Tom Wood, quality advisor, Tom Matthews, safety manager, Jeff Hanson, director of human resources, Maurya Shaw, Lauren International wellness advocate, Heather Crews, human resources, and Carol Best, LMI office manager. Jim Nixon from LMI also gave his presentation to the Cambridge Middle School students.
Additionally, Edgetech welcomed guest speakers Hollie Hartzler, community wellness and nutritionist, from Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center; and Jo Sexton, Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce president.
“Both Hollie and Joe were happy to participate and we hope they will join us again,” Crews said. “The program was once again a great success and we are so grateful to be able to reach out to area youths. I would like to also give special thanks to the teachers who joined us, as well as Don Vogt, Cambridge Middle School’s principal. He was integral in the planning and development of this field trip. We look forward to next time!”
