The Leonard A. Good Trust has officially become a “Founding Partner” of the Boone County High School Manufacturing program by granting the program $34,000 towards the purchase of a $19,000 CNC Plasma CAM and five additional Mig welders at $5,000 each.
The CNC Plasma CAM is a computer programed plasma cutter that will cut through plate steel up to ¾” thick. Students program the software with whatever design they so choose then the program runs the plasma cutter automatically.
This CNC Plasma CAM is the final piece to the puzzle in fabricating the metal projects that the Boone County High School Manufacturing program will be producing and selling to assist in funding the program. There is also a metal fabricator and scroll metal equipment. A powder coat paint system is used to finish the products.
In the fall of 2017, students will be able to take the Mig welding class that will feature professional welders assisting in teaching the course so students can learn directly from welders in the field. Adult night classes are in the making as well.
Boone and Ogden have a sharing agreement so it opens the doors for Boone students to take the manufacturing classes at Ogden high school. In turn, the Ogden students have been taking Ag classes at Boone high school and with the rich STEM classes at Boone high school, the Ogden students can take those classes as well.
The Leonard A. Good Trust provides funds for public affairs and human services. They have assisted the Ogden school district in the past and they continue to support education by funding the Boone County High School Manufacturing program. With their contribution, they are now one of the “Founding Partners” of the program.
