Video Earns Award
Trexler 8th graders – Sophia Langkamer-Smith, Lillian Rohrbach, Jaden Barr, Jean Orejuela, and Zntia Macias – took home the Outstanding Team Spirit Award at the 2017 Lehigh Valley "What's So Cool About Manufacturing" video contest. Their award-winning video was a profile of Atlas Machining & Welding, Inc.
Thirty-one middle school teams from Lehigh, Northampton, Schuylkill, Carbon, Monroe and Bucks counties competed in the 2016 video contest which is part of the Dream It. Do It. PA program. Dream It. Do It. PA is a partnership directed by the Manufacturers Resource Center (MRC) in Allentown, Pa., and is dedicated to changing perceptions and attitudes in the Keystone State about advanced manufacturing careers. Dream It. Do It. PA started in 2013 as an effort called Lehigh Valley Skill Up to raise awareness in the Lehigh Valley area. Each year, the program works with middle school students and partners them with local industries to provide students the opportunity to learn about manufacturing through a creative process.
Congratulations to our Trexler winners!
