KCCC’s Precision Machining Program Receives $18,000 from Gene Haas Foundation

Mount Vernon, OH – Knox County Career Center’s (KCCC) Precision Machining
program recently received an $18,000 grant from the Gene Haas Foundation to support
scholarships.


Scholarships are to be awarded to students who are currently enrolled or will be enrolling
in a CNC Technology Training or CNC Machining-Based Engineering program. The criteria for
determining recipients of these scholarships will be determined by the program’s instructor
and/or advisory committee.


The Gene Haas Foundation was established in 1999 by Gene Haas, founder and owner
of Haas Automation, Inc., to support the needs of the local community, through grants to such
local charities like the Boys and Girls Clubs, Food Share, Rescue Mission, and others.
Seeing a growing need for skilled manufacturing employees industry-wide, the
Foundation expanded its mission to include support for manufacturing training programs
throughout North America and beyond. By providing scholarship grants, sponsoring individual
and team CNC competitions, and partnering with the very best CNC training programs in the
world, the Foundation helps expand the availability of high-quality manufacturing technology
training worldwide.


The Gene Haas Foundation donates millions of dollars every year to manufacturing
education and the community. In 2022, the Gene Haas Foundation provided more than $27
million in grants, bringing the total since inception to more than $175 million.
