EVHS Manufacturing Center Flyer

Earlier this year, NIMA (formerly Inland Northwest Aerospace Consortium) was awarded a $200,000 Evergreen Manufacturing Growth grant from Washington's Department of Commerce to renovate and prepare to launch a manufacturing training center/program at East Valley High School in Spokane Valley.

Led by Wade Larson, with support from East Valley School District and Wagstaff, Inc., the East Valley shop has been transformed into a prime training ground for our region's next generation of manufacturing talent. This renovation is proving to be just a starting point in changing the way we engage and prepare the workforce of the future.

We hope you'll join us as we celebrate this project and share exciting details about next steps we're taking to overcome manufacturing workforce challenges in our region.

The event will include:

  • Overview of NIMA's rebranding and expanded support of I-90 Manufacturers
  • Details and opportunities to join in regional workforce development initiatives
  • Tours of the new facility
  • Hands-on activities including welding, machining and bird house construction
  • Food, swag and great conversation!
