The Lorain County JVS Welding and Fabrication, and Carpentry programs, recently received a generous donation of tools from the Stanley Black & Decker Company.
Tony Tyree, the instructor of the Welding and Fabrication program, expressed his gratitude for the donation, stating, "I am so thankful for this amazing donation. My students can now be exposed to the versatility of having good quality hand tools to use for various operations in the fabrication lab and out in the field."
During the tool unboxing, Tyree identified an excellent opportunity to extend the impact of the donation to another career tech lab. "Some tools seemed tailor-made for our Carpentry program," Tyree shared, "so now, thanks to this donation, two labs are set to benefit greatly."
Paul Papesh, the Carpentry instructor, welcomed the new tools with enthusiasm, remarking, "Students will encounter many different types and styles of equipment on the job sites, and having the opportunity to train on as many as possible, will help them gain a strong start to their career in carpentry, or other construction trade."
Stanley Black & Decker's commitment to education and skill development is evident in their support of career tech programs like those at Lorain County JVS. This donation not only enhances the learning experience for students but also underscores the company's dedication to fostering the next generation of skilled professionals.
