As students go through the Elbert County School system, each adult they come in contact with wants to help them find their place and success in achieving their goals as they leave campus.
Sometimes it takes a year or two after graduation to be able to see them thriving and shining in their new possibilities.
Two recent Elbert County Comprehensive High School graduates are doing just that with MöllerTech Industries.
Taylor Howell, a 2018 ECCHS graduate, became employed with MöllerTech during high school as a Work-Based Learning student and has taken advantage of opportunities this national company offers.
She is currently working as a Human Resources Administrative Assistant and has quickly showed her worth with mentor Donna Young, Human Resources Manager.
Young states that Howell has stepped right into her role and continuously works with the staff in providing support and promotions for the company.
She has recently returned from a training class in Detroit, Michigan representing the company, and Howell also serves as a liaison with career fairs and speakers for local education and community endeavors.
Upon graduating in 2019, M’Kinzey Mackey went straight to work with MöllerTech as a machine operator on the line.
Through her commitment to follow the responsibilities of the position and showing initiative to learn the process, Mackey has shifted in her responsibilities and became a valued employee.
Within just a few short months, she began training with one of the shift supervisors to learn the production paperwork side of the line.
Mackey is committed to continually improving herself and her role within this supportive and booming industry.
As a community and educational partner with ECCHS, MöllerTech continues to look towards new ways to better our local workforce and be supportive of initiatives provided by Elbert County Comprehensive High School.
