Success is his Middle Name
Logan Vance, a MANUFACTURING 2000 student
Upon his high school graduation, he was conflicted. He was unsure whether to pursue a career at a four-year college, or to take manufacturing courses at a vocational-technical school. However, soon after hearing about our MANUFACTURING 2000 (M2K) program, his mind was made up. Logan has completed the M2K program and will begin a job at Clark Precision, located in Blawnox, this month.
Congratulations, Logan
