Manufacturing is a Career Choice at the Career Academy of Siloam Springs

Baldor Electric Company's Westville, Oklahoma Motor Plant team recently presented a donation to the Career Academy of Siloam Springs (CASS).  This donation will be used by CASS to purchase machine tooling and instrumentation for their Industrial Maintenance program.   The mission of the Career Academy, a program within the Siloam Springs High School, is to equip students for future career success with personalized industry-based training and skills integral to local and regional business and industry in order to enter the workforce or pursue secondary education.
Baldor recently hired a graduate of the Career Academy, and the Baldor staff works closely with CASS on curriculum and courses offered in the program.  They appreciate the CASS program for encouraging students to think about manufacturing as a career choice, and they believe programs like this are critical in developing the kinds of skills local manufacturing companies need.
"The Career Academy and instructor Mike Rogers are really good to work with," said Chuck Seals, Baldor's Westville Plant Manager.  "They have been more than willing to learn what is needed in the manufacturing community and have tailored their program to fit those needs.  We are proud to be able to contribute to this organization, we look forward to continuing to partner with them in the future."
