As part of the North Orange County Community College District’s Manufacturing Day week of celebrations, over 100 high school students from La Vista/La Sierra, La Habra and Savanna High Schools will be visiting Fullerton College to tour their Machine Technology and printing technology programs.

Fullerton College President Greg Schulz, Ed.D., and North Orange County Community College District Chancellor Cheryl A. Marshall, Ed.D., will also be speaking to the students at the presentation ceremony.



Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of modern manufacturing during which manufacturers invite their communities — including students, educators, businesspeople, media, and politicians — to their facilities in a collective effort to educate visitors about manufacturing career opportunities and improve public perceptions of manufacturing.
