NCC remembers Stan Kulcyzski, beloved instructor
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our dear friend and passionate instructor, Stanley Kulcyzski, Jr.

Stan was a knowledgeable and dedicated machinist and extremely talented surface grinder who loved to share his experience with everyone he interacted with at New Century Careers during his 14 years as an instructor.

During his time with us, Stan helped launch the manufacturing careers of dozens of trainees who will carry on his legacy in the industry. The trainees and staff were enriched by his gifts and he will be sorely missed by all.
