Kids Switch Day at Dura Supreme - Celebrating 25 Years!
What started out as a Cub Scout project in the early 1990s is now a highly anticipated event every November at Dura Supreme. For the past twenty-five years every employee that has a fifth grader in their life, be it a parent or grandparent, is invited to bring their child to work to learn about what they do at Dura Supreme. The morning is filled with fun and educational activities including a discussion about what makes a good student and how those same traits carry over to being a good employee.
The factory and office tour is up next. The tour guides explain what happens at Dura Supreme each day. And every child gets to see their parent or grandparent and learn as they explain what their role is at Dura Supreme.
After the tour, the entire group meets in the lunchroom to build their very own cabinet! With assistance from the managers and supervisors, they assemble the cabinets, learning the importance of paying attention to the details in order to produce a quality product. After passing “inspection”, the cabinet is theirs to keep.
This week was our 25th anniversary of our annual Kid’s Switch Event! Thank you to all who participated in this week’s Kid’s Switch event. We hope all of the 5th graders who participated enjoyed the factory visit, learning about what their parent or grandparent does here at Dura Supreme and learning how to make their own cabinet by hand! See photos from this year and past years on our Facebook in our "Kids Switch Day..." photo album.
