The county Career and Technical Center hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of a new Precision Machining and Manufacturing lab on Monday. The lab, which was planned by instructor Matt Peters and his students, will be utilized by high school and adult students to earn industry credentials and help gain employment in the manufacturing industry. The celebration was hosted by assistant superintendent and director of high school education Jeremy Corbisello, who thanked everyone involved in the creation of the new lab, through partnerships in business, education, industry and the community. Peters and the students planned the lab space, selected equipment and finalized the required items necessary to have a safe lab environment.
