Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- October is manufacturing awareness month which gave local businesses the perfect opportunity to show what they have to offer.

WITC hosted several businesses from around the Twin Ports.

The event gave people a better understanding of the partnership between industry and the college to educate the future work force.

WITC students have the opportunity to get hands on experience that will transfer directly to many of the careers highlighted at the event.

"Over 70 percent of high school graduates don't want to go to a four year school but they are not sure what else to do. So our hope here tonight is to just start that process and getting the community to understand the manufacturers that are here," said David Minor, president of the Superior and Douglas County Chamber of Commerce.

Ten businesses were at the event including Amsoil, Kestrel, and Field Logic.
