The first graduating class of the Kennametal Foundation’s Young Engineers Program was honored January 4 and included 15 juniors and seniors from Greater Latrobe Senior High School.
The 15-week program included a combination of hands-on projects, classroom discussion, mentoring from Kennametal’s expert engineers, and field trips to Kennametal manufacturing sites. The experiences gave the students a glimpse of the career opportunities available in engineering and the manufacturing industry.
Graduates of the Young Engineers Program included Zack Battaglia, Austin Faddish, Shiloh Kail, Dan Krall, Larry Kunkel, Marisa Larkin, Justin Maust, Josh McIntyre, Lauren Morlacci, Brendan Moss, Charlie Musick, Nathan Schomer, Jonathan Skoloda, Ian Steel, and Patrick Trumbetta.
The students met twice weekly for the program on Kennametal’s headquarters campus in Latrobe, PA, and earned academic credit for their participation and completion of the program.
