The Gene Haas Foundation is a private foundation committed to manufacturing education and providing support. This year, the Foundation awarded Asnuntuck Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology program $12,000 to use for student scholarships for tuition, books, and NIMS credentials. NIMS accreditation is the nation’s only distinction for excellence in metalworking training as based on NIMS industry-written, industry-approved skills standards.

“This is wonderful support for our students and programs to help students with financial need,” said Interim Dean of Advanced Manufacturing Technology Mary Bidwell. “We appreciate all the support that the Gene Haas Foundation has given to our program. Their financial support really makes a difference in the lives of our students.”
