Firestone Fiber & Textiles participates in Students@Work Day

Firestone Fiber & Textiles Students@Work Day participants

The Firestone Fiber & Textiles Plant Kings Mountain, North Carolina, recently invited local eighth grade students to the plant to participate in the first-ever Students@Work Day, a program partnership between Gaston County Schools and the Gaston Regional Chamber. The program aims to help students connect classroom learnings with the real world of work and learn about nearby career opportunities.

During their visit to the plant, students rotated through three stations participating in experiential activities designed to give them hands-on experience with Firestone's procedures. Students also got a tour of facility and discussed career options with teammates.
