Support for Education


Our plant at Elizabethtown, like many Dow Corning sites around the globe, works with local educational establishments to give students an insight into the world of work that will help prepare them for their future.

We regularly welcome students from surrounding schools to our plant, so they can see, at first hand, some of the jobs and responsibilities our employees have. Tours like this, give the pupils a good insight into many different careers, from engineering, to science, or administration.

Our employees also visit students at their schools, to give classroom presentations that stress the importance of developing work-related skills. Activities such as these bring benefits to everyone. They help educators learn more about the skills and qualifications needed within manufacturing and industry, and they also keep us in touch with current issues in education.

Our site has also focused our spending on education. In recent  years, projects we have funded have supported math & science efforts in local schools.

 East Hardin Middle School Career Day

Our work with local schools has resulted in awards such as the Hardin County Partnership Award, the Mayor's Certificate of Excellence Business Award, a Commitment Enhancement Award from the Elizabethtown Independent School System, and the Senate Award, given by our State Senator.
