After School program started at Northwoods MFG
Northwood’s Manufacturing has started an afterschool program for students. The students involved in the metals division of the Northwood’s Manufacturing program have been working on parts for local industry and community members after school since the start of the year. The shop is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Recently over the past few months two Bretting Manufacturing employees, Ron Nygard and Joe Osterman, have been staying after school with the students to work on machined parts that the students of Northwood’s Manufacturing produce for Bretting Manufacturing. Ron and Joe both have many years of experience in the trade and are able to help the students really improve their skill levels. Northwood’s Manufacturing and the Hurley School would like to thank both Ron Nygard and Joe Osterman for their involvement with the school and recognize them for their support.
