Collaborative Partnership with Constellium

Collaborative Partnership with Constellium

Co-Authored by: Xavier Beloued, Sophomore at Colbert County High School


The career tech department at Colbert County High School has partnered with Constelluim to provide a new career experience to students. Students of the Career Tech department have been working with Constellium’s communications & PR Manager, Michelle Cantrell. Ms. Cantrell has visited the classroom, discussed career opportunities and most importantly given students a hands on, real world learning opportunity. Over the last several weeks, marketing students have created flyers for Constellium to promote Cancer Awareness month.  The students are motivated and excited because their designs are being distributed and used throughout the Muscle Shoals plant. According to Marketing student, Nolan Stracener, “I had a lot of fun working on the Constellium flyer projects. It fostered a sense of real world competition between our classmates. Although, my design was not ultimately chosen, I still created something I could be proud of.” But Marketing was only one aspect of the unique partnership. Hospitality & Tourism students at Colbert County High School also catered lunch and served at a Cancer Awareness Lunch & Learn for Constellium employees.  This Saturday, students will be volunteering to help with the Constellium Family Fun day, by working booths, helping with lunch and assisting with fun activities for Constellium employees and their families.  When asked about the partnership, Mrs. April Clark, marketing teacher at Colbert County High School said, “It has been a great experience for my students.  I have seen them take pride and ownership in their work. Constellium has been amazing to work with and I look forward to continuing our partnership.” Not only have the students gained real world experience through this partnership, they have also helped further the “Constellium Cares” mission by raising cancer awareness and funding for the American Cancer Society.





Andrew Smith, Colbert County High School Junior, shows off his flyer design. His design was one of the flyers chosen to be used by the Muscle Shoals Constellium plant during the month of October.
