Today we visited the Herff Jones manufacturing plant in Champaign and got to see where and how our caps, gowns and tassels are made for our upcoming graduation. Herff Jones is committed to elevating the experience of every student they work with, as the students are recognized and honored for their hard work.

Thank you Jake Romano and Greg Jacobs for your time today. We learned a great deal about the manufacturing process, we enjoyed the discussion of how global economics affects production locally and are intrigued by the Herff Jones business model which focuses on profitability and the reuse/recycling products.

We can’t wait for part 2 of our visit in March!
