LSC machine tech students Jared Wood, Brady Mostoller, and Ryan Marshall are now well-equipped to be successful in their machining program and their careers. The LSC Foundation awarded each student a new box of tools for their studies containing nearly $1,500 worth of calipers, micrometers, and indicators and more. Each student gets to keep the toolbox with one catch: they must complete the program or return the tools.
“Getting awarded a tool box set is a real incentive and vote of confidence for these students,” said faculty member Max Udovich “I am sure they will graduate and do very well in the field. It will be the culmination of the hands-on skills education they received at LSC.”
Jared Wood from Duluth, Brady Mostoller from Grand Rapids, MN, and Ryan Marshall from Inver Grove Heights, MN earned the Machine Technology Toolbox Scholarship. The award was based on their classroom performance, career goals, commitment to the program and quality of outside-the-classroom work and volunteering.
Funding for the toolboxes was donated to the LSC Foundation from various industry partners. “We are truly grateful for the ongoing support from our community partners for all our business and industry programs,” said LSC Foundation Executive Director Daniel Fanning. “Our students benefit greatly from receiving scholarships and equipment specific to their field, which would not be possible without generous community support. The Toolbox Scholarship is a win-win for both students and their future employers.”
