Perry Central Community Schools is proud to announce the beginning of our Commodore Manufacturing program this year. This is a work-based learning opportunity for our students that have completed HIRE and Ag Power curriculum to continue on an Advanced Manufacturing pathway. Commodore Manufacturing offers students the opportunity to directly apply skills learned in the classroom to a hands-on production environment.
We are excited for the opportunity that our students will have working directly with local businesses. Commodore Manufacturing students are welding Rakes and Plungers used by Waupaca in their foundry. As well as, assisting Jasper Innovative Solutions with the assembly of weatherstripping kits, brake pads, and transmission cooler vents that are used by their customers.
We are currently working with a local farmer to weld together cow feeders and believe that we can expand our business to include building livestock feeders and gates for local farmers. We look forward to assisting other local businesses with other projects that will help students understand the processes and challenges that businesses face taking a product from concept to delivery to the customer.
We feel fortunate to offer this special learning environment for students to apply what they have learned in the classroom and then see the application result in a tangible product, that they can take pride in. We are also very thankful for the local business partners who have helped us to see this program become a reality and who will continue to help us grow Commodore Manufacturing into a first-class manufacturing facility.
