In addition to our Earth Week festivities, Miron also welcomed young friends into the world of construction on the morning of Thursday, April 24, for Take a Child to Work Day. School-aged children, including sons, daughters, other family members and friends filled Miron’s corporate office to learn about future career options that the construction industry offers.
More than 30 students job shadowed Miron employees as they went about their daily tasks in accounting, business development, estimating, information technology, risk management, marketing, warehouse operations, project coordination and project management.
After learning about different industry jobs, our young guests visited our warehouse to do some construction work of their own. Led by Billy Escribano, Brian Kern, Liz Blohm and Jayne Frazier, our group made and decorated garden boxes, which were donated to residents at Evergreen Assisted Living in Oshkosh. The morning wrapped up with a group lunch, where stories from the day, and gifts (gardening kits), were shared. The Miron team and children returned to their regular activities for the afternoon, but the morning was well spent watching what could be Miron’s next generation learn about what we do each day!
“This is such an incredible Miron event. The kids had a great time (and so did the parents)!! We love being part of this event and look forward to it every year. And the garden boxes were a wonderful idea…not only for the kids but for the lucky recipient!! We loved the presentation about gardening–my daughter is so excited about getting our garden together, especially now that she has her very own seeds and plants, thanks to the generous gifts,” stated Robin Inman, Miron project coordinator.
