ATC Students Tour Toyotetsu America Inc.

On Friday September 29th, senior automotive, welding, and electricity students from Rockcastle ATC participated in an industry tour of Toyotetsu America Inc. (TTAI).  35 students along with instructors Ken Fannin, Jeff Draper, and Curtis Burton toured the facility that manufacturers numerous body components for the Toyota Camry assembled in Georgetown.  The tour was a collaboration between TTAI representative Richard Snowden and Rockcastle ATC principal Sherman Cook.  The purpose of the tour was to educate the students about the various career opportunities related to their career pathway studies at the ATC.  Mr. Snowden and others lead the group on an informative and exciting tour of TTAI allowing students to see stamping operations, die maintenance, robotic welding, shipping/receiving, quality control, and “just in time” production techniques just to name a few.  Mr. Snowden also took time to promote the KY FAME program and discuss recent success of former Rockcastle ATC student Abbygail Stevens as she participates in the KY FAME program.  Rockcastle ATC would like to thank Toyotetsu America Inc. for its hospitality and looks forward to a strong partnership with them and our school. We also appreciate bus driver, Jack Alexander for transporting us to and from TTAI.
