Oshkosh North High School received the Manufacturing Partnership Award from the NEW Manufacturing Alliance for their work with Oshkosh Corporation in the design replica of the company’s first vehicle ever produced – Old Betsy. The project was in celebration of the company’s 100th anniversary.
The grill is a part of Project G.R.I.L.L. (Growing Readiness in Learning and Leading) an educational partnership between a manufacturer and high school that strives to provide students with skills such as design, budgeting, welding, assembly and marketing during the building of the grills.
“Oshkosh North High School has been so fortunate to have such a tremendous partnership with Oshkosh Corporation through our Project GRILL course. We are grateful for the experiences our students have had as a result of this partnership. Thank you to the NEW Manufacturing Alliance for their support of these types of partnerships. It is wonderful to see our schools and our community work together to ensure our students are college, career, and community ready,” said Jacqueline Schleicher, Principal of Oshkosh North High School.
“We are excited that Oshkosh Corporation has partnered for the second year with the Oshkosh Area School System on this program to mentor and raise awareness of the numerous careers that manufacturing offers and excited that this partnership was recognized on a regional basis,” states Patti Andresen-Shew, director of education and talent development, Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce.
