Nine students from Fort Hays State University's Management and Marketing Club recently toured companies in Nashville, Tenn.
"Tours consisted of the A.O. Smith factory, the largest manufacturer of residential water heaters in the U.S., the Gibson Guitar plant, where nearly 3,000 guitars are produced, mostly by hand, each week," said Michael Martin, instructor of management and marketing. "We also toured and visited with David Paine and Partners Marketing and Advertising and received a full tour of the Tennessee Titans training facility from FHSU Alumni Achievement Award winner Brad Brown, and we had a question and answer session with the voice of the Titans, Mike Keith," he said.
