Weyerhaeuser - Idabel Lumber
Mill presented a grant check to Kiamichi Technology Centers-Idabel Campus in the
amount of $6,100 to purchase a Motor and Pump Alignment Station. Jay
Smith, industrial tech instructor, wrote and submitted the grant. With this grant, the industrial tech students
will be trained in proper alignment procedures. Students will also use
this equipment to learn motor control, variable frequency drives, and PLC
programming. This training will prepare
the students to be employed right after graduation at such places like Weyerhaeuser
