MNTC CNC Machining Program Awarded $10,000 Grant from The Gene Haas Foundation

Moore Norman Technology Center's CNC Machining program received a $10,000 grant from The Gene Haas Foundation on August 31.

The Gene Haas Foundation (GHF) grant supports CNC Machining student scholarships and up to $2,500 for SkillsUSA or First Robotics competition expenses. 

GHF's primary goal is to build skills in the machining industry by providing scholarships for CNC machining technology students and NIMS credentials. Scholarship funds will help pay for tuition, books, student's personal NIMS account, and cost of individual NIMS credentials and small personal tools that are required to complete the MNTC CNC Machining program. The recommend scholarship amounts are from $500 to $2500 per student.

MNTC Technical Careers Director Steve Ketchum said,

The funding provided by The Gene Haas Foundation grant will allow us to enhance the educational experience for our CNC Machining students by providing them with the tools and resources they need to be successful.
