WNY P-TECH Ring Precision has recently been recognized as the Business Partner of the Year. Receiving the award were MAST President Del Gier, Ring Prisons President and CEO; And Melissa Hems, Ring Accuracy Human Resources.
Representatives from Ring Precision both attended the WNY P-TECH National Honor Society Ceremony, and Giyer served as a guest speaker for Advanced Development. Also, last summer, four WNY P-TECH students worked with Ring, and two students were part of a new initiative with JCC.
Geir, along with William Smoke, WNY P-TECH principal, and Daniel Demarte, president of JCC, have pooled their resources to provide unique employment opportunities for P-TECH students. While students are taking a college course at JC and living on campus at the college’s Hillside Suites, they are able to complete a summer practice with a Jamestown-based manufacturer.
