The Society of Manufacturing Engineers has selected East Lake High School’s Academy of Engineering as a Partnership Response in Manufacturing Education site.
As a result of the national recognition, the school will receive $35,000 over three years to enhance its manufacturing education program. East Lake will receive $15,000 during the 2013-14 academic year and $10,000 for each of the two following academic school years.
The grant’s details were given and the school was recognized at Tuesday’s regularly scheduled school board meeting.
PRIME is an avenue for the Society of Manufacturing Engineers to create strong partnerships between organizations, businesses and exemplary schools to provide a comprehensive community-based approach to manufacturing education.
The selected schools have exemplary project lead the way programs, skilled instructors, engaged and active students, strong administrative support from the district and school, and corporate support.
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers is a global source for manufacturing knowledge, education and networking.
