Jr. Green Belt Presentations

The NC State College of Textiles – Zeis Textiles Extension is excited to announce a training program for North Carolina junior and senior high school students. The Junior Green Belt Certification Academy is an introduction to Lean Six Sigma (LSS), a continuous process improvement program that incorporates the efficiency tools found in Lean Manufacturing and the data collection and analysis tools found in Six Sigma and merges them into a robust toolkit. Learning these skills will provide the team with the means to reduce waste, improve quality, increase customer satisfaction and improve the bottom line. In addition to receiving LSS training, student teams will complete a project to improve an existing process at their school. The training will provide a structured approach to problem-solving useful at school, work and in life. The participants will be given access to an online training program, attend a four-day session on campus and present their project results in October.

Well that time is finally here and both of our Six Sigma teams will be heading to NC State University to present their projects that they have implemented for VCCS.  Please keep us in your prayers as we solidify our final touches and prepare to represent our Kings to the Glory of God.
