It is no small thing to start a new school, and it requires many generous supporters. Thanks to one such supporter, Micron Manufacturing, Harmel Academy has started building out its teaching laboratory.
Micron very generously donated a Cincom Citizen B12 Swiss CNC lathe as the first machine for our teaching lab. This machine is a common type of equipment in manufacturing. Instead of learning about machine systems on a simulator, Harmel students will be able to tear apart, reassemble, fix, and maintain machine systems on a CNC of the same type and complexity they will encounter in actual shops.
This investment is very humbling for us, since it shows that Micron not only believes in Harmel’s mission, but trusts us to deliver excellent trades education and to provide the sort of tradesmen their industry so desperately needs.
So thank you, Micron!
