Marshall, Apr 23 - Seventeen students from Marshall High School's automotive class toured the Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) carbohydrate plant here today.

"It was a pleasure to welcome Marshall High School’s Automotive class to our facility. By touring our plant, these students gain valuable insight into how local corn crops are transformed into clean energy, as well as bio-industrial uses and animal feed. Moreover, we’re able to give students an appreciation for the ways in which our industry benefits Minnesotans by lowering prices at the pump, providing cleaner air, reinforcing rural economies and reducing our reliance on foreign oil," said Greg Webb, vice president for state government relations at ADM. 

The students that participated in the tour were from grades 11 and 12. 

During the tour, the students learned about the ethanol production while also visiting the plant's fructose plant and mainteinance shop. The tour was organized by the Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MN Bio-Fuels). ADM is a member of MN Bio-Fuels.

"My students benefited from their tour of ADM by gaining practical insights into the production process, deepening their understanding of ADM, and connecting classroom learning to real-world applications. Additionally, the tour provided an opportunity for students to engage with industry professionals, ask questions, and explore potential career paths in the sustainable energy sector," said Mike Braithwaite, agriculture teacher at Marshall High School.
