Members of the Public Relations/Business (PR/B) Club visited two international companies with headquarters in Winona. In September, about 20 members of the club visited WinCraft, a nationwide leader in the manufacturing of licensed and promotional products that specializes in sports-related merchandise. The students learned about WinCraft’s communication, marketing, and sales strategies and then toured WinCraft’s state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facilities. In November, PR/B Club students enjoyed a tour and “meet the managers” session at Fastenal headquarters. Students met with eight senior and middle managers to learn more about the Fastenal business operations and to explore internship and co-op education opportunities.
