Made in Henderson County is a coordinated effort established to enhance the connection between manufacturing businesses and the Henderson County Public Schools, while telling the story of manufacturing, the products that are made here, and the people who make them. The initiative is focused on raising the visibility of manufacturing as a viable career path to ensure that Henderson County students have diverse employment opportunities in the community and manufacturing businesses have access to skilled local talent.
