The purpose of this grant is to assist Mayland Community College (MCC) with establishing a Career and College Promise (CCP) pathway in Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Machining at Mitchell County High School. MCC has identified a local need for 77 certified machine operators over the next two years. Establishing a feeder program at Mitchell High School is essential to increasing enrollment in the machining program due to travel constraints that make it difficult for students from Mitchell County to travel to the Yancey County Ansbauch Center for classes. Funds will be used to purchase a CNC equipment and tooling to train participants for employment opportunities in machining.
