Colonial Manufacturing will provide students with authentic, hands-on learning opportunities that will help them develop the essential skills needed in the manufacturing sector. Once accepted into the program, they are placed into specific positions ranging from quoting, ordering materials, manufacturing parts and quality control.
The year-long program will be the pipeline for potential employees to join Yazoo’s workforce. Hiring of graduate students that participated in the program will allow for a significant decrease in training with higher functioning individuals that already have the high-level of technical skills and fundamental principles that our company is looking for.
The donation will have an immediate impact on students by providing the resources needed to bring Colonial Manufacturing to completion. The program will be available at no cost to all New Oxford students and is slated to begin in August 2019.
