$10,000 Check Presentation to WKCTC Computerized Manufacturing and Machining Program from Gene Haas Foundation October 19
Paducah, KY (10/12/2018) — NOT FOR PUBLICATION
A check presentation for a $10,000 scholarship grant from the Gene Haas Foundation to West Kentucky Community and Technical College's Computerized Manufacturing and Machining (CNC) program will be held October 19 at 11:30 a.m. in the high bay, room 150 in the WKCTC Emerging Technology Center.
The Gene Haas Foundation provides scholarships for CNC machinist training to high schools, community colleges and trade schools. The college's CNC program was awarded the grant based on the technology used to train students, the number of students in the program each year and the outreach the college does with other programs.
The Gene Haas Foundation strives to introduce students to careers in machine technology and manufacturing, build the skills in the machining industry, and to help military veterans enroll in programs that train them to become skilled machinists. Therefore the foundation funds can be used to support student scholarships, NIMS Credentialing and competitive spirit such as SkillsUSA and robotic competitions.
The media is encouraged to attend the check presentation.
