Atlanta, GA— Skye Pullen, an eleventh grader from St. Simons Island, shared a stage with Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle April 3 in honor of Georgia’s manufacturing industry.

Pullen took second place in her division of the 2013 Manufacturing Appreciation Week (MAW) student design contest. She received a $300 scholarship check, presented by Lt. Gov. Cagle, at the MAW Governor’s Awards Luncheon held at the Georgia International Convention Center. 

“These young students are our best and brightest, and our future in manufacturing depends on them,” said Larry Callahan, CEO of Patillo Industrial Real Estate, as the awards were presented.

Students from around the state submitted design entries featuring Georgia manufacturers and their products. Winners were named for grades 9-12, 6-8, and K-5. 
Lorette M. Hoover, President of Altamaha Technical College, congratulated Pullen, saying, “We are honored to have three talented students representing Altamaha Technical College, and to see their success as they receive personal recognition from the Lieutenant Governor is inspiring.”

During the ceremonies, Lt. Gov. Cagle named Georgia’s 2013 Manufacturers of the Year: Southwire Company in Carrollton and Douglas in the large manufacturer category (more than 500 employees); Nordson Corporation’s Swainsboro facility in the medium manufacturer category (150-500 employees); and Savannah’s DIRTT Environmental Solutions in the small manufacturer category (fewer than 150 employees).

Co-hosted by the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the awards luncheon is the highlight of MAW, celebrated this year April 1-5. This is the 19th year celebrating Manufacturing Appreciation Week in Georgia.

Pullen is the daughter of Kevin and Laura Pullen of St. Simons Island and is the granddaughter of Jennie Pullen Richard of Newnan and Lois Anton of Plymouth, Wis. She attends Glynn Academy.
