SAN BERNARDINO – Not all students are destined for careers as doctors, lawyers, educators, or other white-collar careers. Not all people choose the same type of career. San Bernardino County First District Supervisor Lovingood understands the diverse nature of personalities, interests, abilities, and well-paying careers. That is why on Thursday, February 22, 2018, from 9 am to 2 pm, Supervisor Robert A. Lovingood, chairman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, is hosting the third annual “Made in the High Desert” manufacturing event.
The event will take place at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds, located at 14800 7th Street in the City of Victorville. Supervisor Lovingood will be at the Fairgrounds from 10am-11am.
The event is created to introduce students to careers in well-paying jobs with local manufacturers. This event is expected to bring 2,000 students from 6th-12th grade, to learn, participate, and for some, maybe even be connected with local employers. Local manufacturers will learn about business, careers and the training required to secure jobs. Manufacturers will also introduce teachers so that they could connect classroom instruction with practical application in industry.
Lovingood started the “Made in the High Desert” event in 2015 to stimulate interest in technical training and manufacturing careers among students. The event has been extended with a pre-screened, invitation-only job fair on Friday. The High Desert is home to a growing number of manufacturing firms due to pro-business policies of local governments, an independent air quality management district, available land and the workforce. Corporate site selectors are shifting away from decisions based on “location, location, location.” Today, the greatest driver is available workforce.
