MICHauto Hosts Churchill High School Students at HELLA for First Discover Auto Tour

MICHauto’s Discover Auto program connects students to the career opportunities available to them in the automotive industry through immersive tours with those leading its ongoing evolution. In the first tour of the school year, 15 computer science students from Livonia’s Churchill High School were welcomed to HELLA’s Northville facility on Friday, Oct. 18 for career discussion and exploration.

HELLA CEO Joerg Weisgerber provided the students an introduction to HELLA’s work and its role in the automotive industry and the company’s Young Scholar program. Current Young Scholar, Gwen Roberts, shared a firsthand account of what the program entails and how the challenging work prepares students for fulfilling careers.

Beyond exposure to the operational components of the industry, this Discover Auto tour offered career lessons about work-life balance, the global reach of a Michigan-based automotive career, and the diverse spectrum of roles available – from traditional manufacturing to software development and everything in between.
