On April 3rd, 2009, Hubbard-Hall participated in the Pathways to Technology Career Workshop for local high school students held at Naugatuck Valley Community College. Organized by the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA), the workshop was supported by the National Science Foundation, as well as private and public sector entities.

Business participants in the workshop covered six different curriculum areas including Bioscience, Energy, Environmental Science, Life Support and Sustainable Living, Manufacturing and Engineering. The workshop emphasized the educational requirements for careers in each of these fields.

One of four presenters, Hubbard-Hall’s Regulatory Affairs Manager Jack Paul, discussed opportunities in the environmental field. He noted life experiences working with the United States EPA, OSHA, state environmental agencies and industry. Mr. Paul explained the satisfaction of working with Hubbard-Hall customers regarding environmental issues and safety training.

With approximately 200 students in attendance, the workshop was well received by local students and the academic community.
