The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to help expand the machinist training program at Pisgah High School to meet the demand for highly skilled machinists. This program will become a direct feeder program of entry-level machinists to Haywood Community College’s Advanced Machining Center at the Regional High Tech Center as well as to industries in Western North Carolina. This program will offer college credits during high school, advanced placement at the community college and apprenticeships during the second semester of senior year. At least 120 students will be served in the next year. The program has an established internship program and ongoing working relationship with employers that places students in jobs and provides services needed by industry.
