What Is E&: Originating out of the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce, the Beaver County Energy & Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (E&) is a collaborative effort which aims to “connect the dots between education and business.” This collaboration will benefit not only the local school districts, their students, and teachers, but also the business community, and reflective industries. The vision of E& is to “connect the dots between education & business.” This vision cannot be accomplished by just a one-and-done career day; however through a partnership comprised of community leaders, education representatives, business and industry representatives, we aim to achieve three main goals during the year-long initiative.
