Goal 1: To continuously improve student growth and achievement. On Tuesday, March 24, students from Dunlap High School attended the Caterpillar Engineering and Manufacturing Operations Career Exploration Experience. This program was open to freshman and sophomore students interested in engineering who are excelling in math and science. Two male and seven female students were given a full day at Caterpillar’s East Peoria location. Once there, the students were able to meet with individuals currently working for Caterpillar. Employees in fields such as Supply Chain Management, Engineering, Marketing, Safety, and Manufacturing told their stories of what brought them to Caterpillar, and the students had the opportunity to ask questions. Students were able to tour the facilities, getting an up close look at life in the Caterpillar factories. The day was extremely beneficial and equally enjoyable for the students.
