Atlanta, GA— Ashlee Savage, a seventh grader from St. Simons Island, Ga., shared a stage with Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle today in honor of Georgia’s manufacturing industry.

Savage took first place in her division of the 2013 Manufacturing Appreciation Week (MAW) student design contest. She received a $500 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 Savage, 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. 

Savage resides with her grandparents, Bill and Charla Delaney, on St. Simons Island. She attends Glynn Middle School.
