High Schools Receive $40,000 in Equipment

June 18, 2012
NASHUA, N.H. — Extech recently donated over $40,000 worth of handheld test equipment to vocational, technical, and science programs at area high schools. The diverse array of Extech meters and testers was given to four high schools in eastern Massachusetts.

Arpineh Mullaney, Extech vice president, discussed the donation. “We are excited to support the future of our communities’ technical and scientific workforce. Tradespeople help keep our world operating one electrical circuit, one HVAC duct, one circuit board, one industrial motor at a time. Extech is committed to the fantastic technical training programs available to launch young men and women in high school into in-demand careers.”

Mullaney added, “Looking ahead, as we see macro trends such as the baby boomer retirement wave, our nation faces an imminent shortage of qualified technicians. We need to continually encourage and support our youth to explore satisfying careers in the technical trades.”

Test equipment was donated for use in the following programs: electrical, electronics, HVAC, auto body, automotive technology, plant/facilities management, carpentry, robotics, as well as science and lab programs. Schools receiving donations included Waltham High School in Waltham, Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School in Framingham, Ashland High School in Ashland, and Diman Regional Vocational High School in Fall River.
