Paramount Apparel International (PAI) recently enlisted the help of the Bourbon High School Beta Club. PAI needed display boxes assembled and the Beta Club stepped up to the challenge.
Beta Club co-sponsor Jessica Delmont and several Betas worked after school for a period of two weeks to complete the project. PAI would deliver a set of 50 boxes, Betas would build them, and PAI would pick up the finished product. All total, Betas assembled 250 boxes to be used in stores for Memorial Day displays. In return, PAI made a gracious donation to the Beta Club for their efforts.
PAI’s Apparel Value Stream Director, Reggie Saunders, was the coordinator of the joint effort. On Thursday, May 20, Saunders invited the Betas to tour Paramount and provided lunch for them.
Eleven Betas, with their sponsors Delmont and Trish Lewis, learned more about the work PAI does, how the machines operate and even discussed a possible internship opportunity for Beta artist, BHS junior Chloe Cobb. While having lunch, Betas talked with Chris Fiedler, Vice President of Manufacturing, about the highlights of their visit.
This is not the first time the two groups have partnered together. For several years, PAI has donated shirts for the Beta Club Blood Drives. The Bourbon Beta Club appreciates the continued support of PAI and looks forward to working with them again.
