Global valve manufacturing leader Emerson recently hosted Marshalltown High School students as part of its first ever STEM Academy. The two-week job shadow program gave students the opportunity to learn about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at Emerson.

The program ran June 12 to 23 and included four MHS students and one student who is a descendent of the original Fisher family which founded the company.

The four MHS students included Javier Ramirez, Felipe Bautista, Sam Estrada and Stella Roseburrough-Borras and the descendent was Jasper Fisher.

Emerson Group Vice President Terry Buzbee met with the group as part of the academy as well.
