To educate and excite high school students about careers in manufacturing, the Manufacturer & Business Association and the National Tooling & Machining Association of Northwest PA are gearing up for a 17-county tour of schools, showcasing the American Manufacturing Tribute Bike. This one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe motorcycle represents the best of American manufacturing and the 21 member companies who supply parts for Harley.
As part of The Making of a Legend – Careers in Manufacturing program, students gain a better understanding of the technology and training required in manufacturing, as well as the importance of mathematics and science education in all aspects of the industry.
The Manufacturer & Business Association created this award in 1972 to recognize outstanding high school students who distinguish themselves in pursuit of technical and academic excellence.
This scholarship was named in honor of Association Vice President Patrick R. Locco, a strong advocate of vocational education.
