“In my time at Red Wing High School, the internship I have at Red Wing Shoes has been the most enriching and beneficial form of education I’ve received.”
“Learn & Earn has been the most meaningful experience of my high school career.”
Manufacturing drives so much of the economic activity here, It is very important. Right now we have a great need for operations people, machinists and assemblers. Our business has grown exponentially in the past 2 -3 years. We appreciate the students taking an interest in this field - there are opportunities with businesses like ours - so stick with it.“
We'd love to have [students] come in here and see what we are doing, you might have ideas. For those of you thinking of engineering type jobs, we need some brilliant creative minds. We need these young students coming out and coming out prepared.“
