ECS Students are Growing Vegetables to Supplement School Lunches
Industry Collaboration with Advanced Metal Components
Employees of Advanced Metal Components are working to provide industry collaboration with Emanuel County Schools. Doug Brown, President, and Bill Lewis, Quality Manager, are seen here presenting Jess Bush, Engineering and Technology Instructor at Swainsboro High School, and Kendall Hadden, Engineering and Technology Instructor at Emanuel County Institute, with measuring tools including: height gages, digital calipers, protractors, and linear measurement scales. AMC is also providing both schools with drawings and finished products. Students in the Engineering and Technology Pathway classes at both SHS and ECI, will inspect the products using the drawings and tools. Some of the products have intentional mistakes that students will be taught to find during the class. Once students find the mistakes, they will propose a solution for correcting the product.
Doug Brown, President of AMC, said of the collaboration, “We are proud to have the opportunity to work together on the Quality Inspection Lab. This program will provide opportunities for the students to learn skills that will translate into a solid career in modern manufacturing. The administration is showing a great commitment to developing our next generation workforce. The staff at both schools has been incredible to work with, and we are looking forward to more collaboration in the future.” Stefanie Mason, Director of CTAE, who has worked as the liaison for this collaboration stated, “I am excited to see what the future holds with this collaboration. I believe it is going to truly benefit our community because students are going to receive real-world, hands-on, career-level experiences that will make them more marketable for their future, regardless of the occupation they choose.” ###
