Cooper Tire hosts eighth graders

Sharing opportunities in manufacturing early

TEXARKANA, Ar - Cooper Tire is hosting hands-on events for area eighth graders this week at the Texarkana, Arkansas Convention Center.

About two-thousand students are expected to attend the event this week, which continues on Friday.

Organizers say thousands of great jobs in the manufacturing field fo unfilled every year.  They hope this event captures the attention of young people as they're looking toward the future.

Human Resources Manager Blake Aubrey said, "There's a misconception about manufacturing jobs, that it's manual labor and hard work, but there's all kinds of different jobs available."  

The event coincides with National Manufacturing Month.
