Heroes Connect: Military to Manufacturing Community Spotlight – Waco, Texas

The Manufacturing Institute, the education and workforce partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, is pleased to invite you to Heroes Connect: Military to Manufacturing. Heroes Connect is a new platform for our manufacturers to virtually connect with all of our students simultaneously.



Heroes MAKE America is dedicated to building a pipeline between the military and manufacturing. We are committed to helping today’s American heroes become tomorrow’s manufacturing leaders.

In response to COVID-19 impacts, the Institute launched Heroes Connect: Military to Manufacturing, a virtual initiative to facilitate introductions between our Heroes participants and alumni to manufacturers who are currently hiring. Through these events we continue to connect our military and veteran communities with manufacturers who are actively hiring through these tough times.

Heroes MAKE America, in partnership with the Greater Waco Chamber, invite you on a virtual tour of Waco, TX and two of the local manufacturers. You’ll hear from community leaders about the local economic opportunities and resources that contribute to a great quality of life, enjoy a virtual tour of the community, then hear from two local manufacturing companies who are currently hiring (Allergan & Trane). You’ll also directly engage through video with community and company representatives to learn why Waco is a great place for Veterans and their families to live, work, play, and go to school!
