Earlier this week, the Precision Machine Technology students had the opportunity to visit Cutting Edge Machine & Tool, Inc. in New Paris, IN. Cutting Edge is a locally owned machining & design company that has grown exponentially since they began in 1990. Please take a moment to visit their website to learn more about what they do:

Thank you so much to Cutting Edge for allowing our students to explore your facility & the unique equipment you have! 

Yesterday evening, the WACC Precision Machine Technology II students graduated from Ivy Tech Community College with a certificate in Machine Tool Technology at the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, IN. These students completed a dual-credit, two-year program through the WACC & Warsaw's Ivy Tech Community College.

Congratulations to:

Brandon Bradley, Jacob Bradley, Kevin Dailey, Roger Fitzpatrick, Bishop Harrison, Larry Hollar, Miguel Juarez Cervantes, Johnathan McGurn, Andrew Mevis, Ethan Miller, & Craig Ronk. 
A dream that had originally been envisioned two years ago has now become a reality for not only the Warsaw Area Career Center, Ivy Tech Community College, and local orthopedic companies- but most importantly to 14 high school students.
This vision resulted in the first college-based, dual credit program for a Machine Tool Technology Certificate (CT) in Kosciusko County.
These 14 students spend part of their day here at WCHS and part of their day at the Orthopedic and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center (OAMTC) at the Warsaw Ivy Tech Community College Campus. Upon graduation in May, these students will not only receive their certificate in Machine Tool Technology, but will also have earned nearly a year of college credit towards an associate degree.
The WACC, Ivy Tech, and OAMTC would like to thank the following companies for providing scholarship funds to enable these 14 students to participate in this program: DePuy Synthes, ZimmerBiomet, Paragon Medical, and Medtronic. We are very appreciative of generous donations given because without the support of these companies our students wouldn’t have this amazing opportunity.
