Millat Industries has partnered with Kettering Fairmont high school in supporting their efforts to expand their Career Technology Center program to include Advanced Manufacturing. Currently, Kettering Fairmont offers a total of 14 CTC programs to its students, with 50% of juniors and seniors participating. However, 70% of sophomores have expressed interest in a CTC program, which will require expansion to allow all students to participate. The current plan will provide expansion in current CTC programs as well as an addition of an Advanced Manufacturing program.
Adam Millat, Executive Vice President, and Keith Isaacs, Vice President of Corporate Services, recently visited Kettering Fairmont to meet with Ohio LT. Governor, Jon Husted, to discuss the needs of the program and support Kettering Fairmont’s efforts to secure funding for CTC expansion.
LT. Governor Husted had this to say during the roundtable discussion; “We have a lot of manufacturing and tech jobs that are growing and the workforce is shrinking. So, we can’t leave anyone behind. We need every high school student to graduate career ready so we can match them with an employer, and get them out to the workforce,”
Millat Industries has long supported the CTC Engineering program offered to Kettering Fairmont students. Recently, Millat Industries hosted a facility tour and Q&A session with 18 students currently enrolled in the CTC Engineering program. Millat Industries also currently offers internship opportunities to students enrolled in this program, and will look to expand in other roles as Kettering Fairmont expands its CTC offerings to include Advanced Manufacturing.
