The Oconee Economic Alliance recently launched a new marketing campaign focused on manufacturers. “Made In Oconee” is a coordinated marketing initiative established by the Oconee Economic Alliance to enrich the relationship between local manufacturers and the school district of Oconee County. This multi-tiered campaign highlights the products made in Oconee County and the people who make them.
“We are very pleased to participate in the ‘Made In Oconee’ campaign,” said Ginger Hopkins, Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services for the School District of Oconee County. “The first phase is a great start toward celebrating our county’s strengths. More importantly, it is a big step forward in educating our students about the career opportunities available to them here in Oconee County. We are working hard in the district with our partners to guide students in their career path decisions and this campaign will be a useful resource.”
The first phase of the “Made In Oconee” campaign is primarily focused on gauging the general perception of manufacturing in local students and working to change it. Students from across the county were asked an array of questions in order to gain a real perspective on young people’s sentiments surrounding manufacturing. The responses were varied, enlightening and will play an important role in how future conversations are shaped.

The Oconee Economic Alliance wanted to know what students in Oconee County really thought about manufacturing so we decided to go straight to the source. We talked to six different students from across the school district and what they said might surprise you. For more information on Oconee Economic Alliance, visit: http://investoconeesc.com/
