GE Appliances’ Louisville-based summer supply chain co-ops did more than their days jobs this year.

One group volunteered their time to support Doss High School students in Louisville by creating videos to supplement the manufacturing curriculum taught there.

Doss and GE Appliances (GEA) have been partners since 2018 with the part-time work program, GEA2Day, and a high-tech lab with a manufacturing mock demonstration line that was installed at the school by GEA.

To keep things fun this summer, the GEA Talent Development team held a competition for creating the best video. 

Eight co-ops created videos to support Doss, and Gabrielle Rodriguez, from the University of Louisville, earned first place for her video on machine down time.

  • 3rd - Alison Wells and Ashley Lasky, Customer Satisfaction and Scorecards
