The Wytheville-Wythe-Bland Chamber of Commerce, Clarke Precision Machine, and others in our area came together to sponsor a course for high school seniors! This course program trained students on getting the job, the basics of manufacturing, available hand tools certifications, metrology certifications, and more.
The program was made available to Bland and Wythe County high school seniors for free. Students who completed the program were awarded a certificate of completion, 3M & NC3 certifications, and a scholarship for instruction manuals and/or hand tools needed to start a career in manufacturing.
We were proud to participate in this program, and saw it as an excellent opportunity to invest in our community. Investing in our people is one of the cornerstones of our company culture.
