Local business LMI Packaging continues to partner with Kenosha’s three local colleges to provide good paying jobs, real world work experience and tuition benefits for college students.
Carthage College students pose at LMI Packaging, where they have been working as part of a partnership program.
Since the company launched its college program in May of 2021, it has employed about 25 students: Four from Gateway Technical College, one student from UW-Parkside and the remainder from Carthage College.
“After reaching out to our local schools, President (John) Swallow of Carthage College responded almost immediately,” said J.P. Moran, CEO of LMI Packaging. “He was here at LMI within a week. The Carthage group has been phenomenal in helping launch this program.”
Participating students can take jobs in the ink room, as a press helper, or in die cutting operations.
LMI, 8911 102nd St. in Pleasant Prairie, also works with students to help them explore other areas of the company or find jobs that align with their career plans, such as in finance or marketing.
