CLINTON, Miss. (WJTV) – Continental Tire partnered with Hinds Community College to visit sophomores at Clinton High School (CHS) for National Apprenticeship Week to talk about career and educational opportunities.

Continental Tire offers CHS students an apprenticeship opportunity and dual-enrollment manufacturing classes.

“This is a great opportunity for CHS students,” Clinton’s Career and Technical Education Director Dr. Bill Hardin said. “The prospect of getting an education while building a career has never been more evident than what Continental Tire and Hinds Community College are offering. We are excited to see where this relationship leads.”

“Today’s presentation exposed students to a world-class company providing incredible career opportunities. The Hinds team looks to continuing our collaboration to offer Clinton High School students dual credit Electric-Mechanical Technology classes that can lead to the Production Technician and Mechatronics Level 1 Registered Apprenticeship programs at Continental Tire,” said Josh Bower, Dean of Agriculture and Transportation.
