    CEC Tour of Brainerd High School "Future Ready" program

    Host:  Jeannette Tippett, Future Ready Institute Coach at Brainerd High School

    Tour Description:  As a follow up to our May 2018 program on HCDE’s Future Institute, we will tour Brainerd High School's Institute of Aviation. They also have an Institute of Entrepreneurship, an Institute of Law, a First Responder, and a Forensic Science offering. 

    The Institute of Aviation incorporates the career-technical education programs of study for aviation flight as well as maintenance and light repair. The curriculum includes learning the principles of flight, access to using a flight simulator, use of drones, engine work and repair, general maintenance, and larger problem solving regarding engine work. Students may want to learn to be a pilot or become certified to work as a mechanic, but there are many other distinct jobs within the aviation field such as counter work for an airline, handling baggage, security, hospitality on board airplanes, painting or upholstery work on aircraft.

    Brainerd High School is very appreciative of their aviation classroom with flight simulator stations, the VW e-lab, a lab for health sciences, a criminal justice room, computer lab for business and marketing classes, a working shop/lab for cosmetology, and a working bistro for culinary arts. All made possible with support of industry and community partners.

    Logistics:  Please arrive before noon and park at the side parking lot (first school driveway coming from Brainerd Rd direction). The receptionist will need check all in (bring ID).

    Lunch will not be provided in connection with this tour.

    PDH is not expected to be awarded for this tour.

    Grand Opening of Kenco Innovation Lab 

    Formed in 2015, Kenco Innovation Labs and its dedicated team of innovation specialists collaborate with customers to identify, research, and prototype leading-edge ideas and processes. This team also partners with vendors and entrepreneurs from various industries to identify supply chain trends and think "inside the box" applying innovative solutions to complex logistics issues. May of 2019, Kenco Logistics announced plans to open a dedicated physical warehouse space, an expansion of the Supply Chain Innovation Lab. The tour will be a grand opening of this new space. It will serve as a test facility for the team to assess value-added technology and provide advanced visibility into these solutions. The ability to test potential supply chain management solutions and technological advances outside of a live operation will enhance accuracy, sustainability and improve implementation speeds for Kenco’s customers.
    Vendors will be present.
    There will be Food and Giveaways!

    TVA Sequoyah Nuclear Plant Supporting Manufacturing with Reliable Energy


    North Hamilton Council in collaboration with Chattanooga Regional Manufacturing Association will again host a MFGDay event in October. 

    Manufacturing Day (MFGDay) addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t.  Chattanooga was nicknamed Dynamo of Dixie due to the wealth created by manufacturing in late nineteenth century.  Today manufacturing still support the regional economy.  As our region recruit more manufacturers, reliable energy source is an important qualifier.  TVA Economic Development serves the seven states that make up the TVA service area—almost all of Tennessee and parts of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia and Kentucky. TVA has been named by site selection magazine among the top 10 utilities for economic development. Here locally, Sequoyah Nuclear Plant has provided low cost and reliable energy since 1981.  The plant supports the local community with Partners in Education, Sequoyah Spirit Fund and community/education outreach. 

    Matthew Rasmussen, Site Vice President at Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, will explain how the two units produce 1,160 megawatts each, supplying power to 1.3 million homes and industrial customers each day.  Mr. Rasmussen has over 17 years of nuclear operation and management experience at TVA, both at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant and Sequoyah. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Auburn University.

    Cost: $10 per person

    Engineers Club/CRMA Tour--  Southtree  (beginning of Manufacturers Week)

    Southtree is a decade old company that began as a startup while the two founders were attending college.  Adam Boeselager and Nick Macco were still Lee University students and housemates when they founded Southtree in their garage in Cleveland, Tennessee, and began converting old movies and slides into digital files for storage and replay on current electronic devices.

    Southtree is now the biggest e-commerce company in its industry, having digitized more than 2 million videos and created more than 3 million DVDs.  We will tour Southtree newest 40,000 square foot production facility.

    Lunch on your own.

    1 PDH credit will probably be awarded, available by email to members who request it at sign-in.
