The Technology & Manufacturing Association’s Education Fund continues to help local high schools build their machining skills courses.
Thursday, TMA’s Board Chairman Todd Beauchamp presented East Aurora High School with a check for $6,200. The department will use the funds to buy two Mitey Machinist Packages.
The packages will provide students with what they need to practice a variety of machining skills, including measurement skills and verifying cutting depth. The equipment will also help the students work with design files from Gerber to AutoCAD.
Receiving the check for East Aurora High School was Dr. Margo Schmitt, grants coordinator for East Aurora School District 131 and Beatrice Reyes Childress, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services.
