Dayton Christian's Vision
You might call Gary Recker, Industrial Education Instructor, Dayton Christian Schools, a visionary.
Dayton Christian’s connection with DRMA is relatively new. That collaborative spark has begun to seed visionary opportunities for DC through DRMA’s workforce development programs. Following the initial discussions, DRMA sent Gary a list of local manufacturers looking for young talent with a passion for manufacturing.
Gary immediately seized the opportunity and began to contact companies on the list.
“The response has been amazing. The DRMA member companies have the
same primary desire we do at Dayton Christian - to find opportunities
and careers for local students passionate about manufacturing.”
- Gary Recker, Industrial Education Instructor, Dayton Christian Schools
Gary also teaches his students the basic, but critical, skills of writing a cover letter, creating a resume, as well as proper methods and tactics in contacting, interviewing, and landing a job. Like many freshman students entering high school, Gary’s students were not sure what they wanted to do. What is gratifying to Gary about the DRMA program is the collaboration that allows his students to more clearly see their career vision through internships and potential employment with local manufacturing companies.
