Gyford Donation Provides Hands-On Experience for Manufacturing Students
Gyford StandOff Systems, a
decorative mounting hardware manufacturer, donated over $16 thousand of
new and refurbished machinery and hardware to the Manufacturing
Technologies programs at Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC). The
contribution will play a pivotal part in training students to repair and
program complex automated manufacturing technologies.
"[This] support plays an integral role in our educational mission, and
allows the College to provide a higher level of excellence for our
deserving students," said Paula Lee Hobson, executive director of TMCC
Foundation and Institutional Advancement.
TMCC's Manufacturing Technologies programs are designed to build skills
crucial to navigate the constantly evolving field of manufacturing, so
graduates are prepared for careers in drafting, electronics, industrial
systems, machining and production systems. Gyford's donation will grant
these students-current and future-exclusive access to some of the latest
and most-used automation technologies in the industry.
Gyford StandOff Systems' involvement with TMCC over the years can be
attributed to George Lacombe, manufacturing manager at Gyford, who has
served on the TMCC welding advisory board for nearly a decade, and
currently holds the title as TMCC's Manufacturing Technology Board Vice
Chair. Lacombe says he believes the contribution will give TMCC students a
competitive edge in the job market by providing them challenging, hands-on
experiences within their education.
