The President’s Pen is a weekly blog written by Jonathan Smith, New Vision’s President and CEO about local economic development projects and initiatives. It also covers economic trends, workforce issues, business climate policies, and manufacturing news.
We are very pleased to share two new STEM video clips that highlight career options and skilled needed for success at GE Aviation and Shield Bag and Printing. These videos are a central piece of our office's work with employers and educators to develop a robust talent pipeline. Now that these two clips are done we plan to produce at least six more highlighting local companies and careers.

New Vision is purposely teamed up with the Yakima Valley Technical Skills Center's Video Production Department to produce videos. We wanted YV Tech students to produce these clips because our target audience for these clips is younger adults (see our blog on why this is important!). Our team has been thrilled with our student production team. Leah Shannon, Jacob Galbreath and Erick Richmond have gotten off to a great start with our first two company videos.
Here is more information about our STEM video project.
