Not only does Henderson provide the best infrastructure in the realm of business but also in the realm of higher education.
The focus on higher education is a constant pursuit for continuous growth and improvement in the city of Henderson. This month Henderson took initiative and partnered with Clark County School District to host tours of the most prominent manufacturing facilities in the city.
In honor of celebrating this month’s National Manufacturing Day middle and high school students will have the opportunity to learn more about this local sector and future career opportunities.
According to Barbra Coffee, Director of City of Henderson’s Economic Development and Tourism Division, “Henderson is home to more than 50 manufacturing firms and the city is well positioned for future manufacturing growth.”
As Henderson continues to spur economic growth apart from the typified Vegas gaming industry the city also takes lead in shaping the future to improve higher education.
