Ten students from Warsaw’s Orthopedic and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center graduated Friday from Ivy Tech Community College’s Warsaw Site. Seven of those students earned a certificate in Machine Tool Technology, and three, who earned their certificate last year, earned their technical certificate this year, which means those students have the first year of their two-year associate degree finished.
The students earning their certificate are Jacob Barker, Jameson Baker, Tristyn Lewis, Matthew Shoemaker, Derek Hunsberger, Travis Hyden, and Tyler Hitchcock. The students earning their technical certificate are Craig Ronk, Miguel Juarez Cervantez, and Larry Hollar.
The Center provides college-based high school dual credit classes, which means those 10 students earned high school and Ivy Tech credit simultaneously. They represent high schools including Tippecanoe Valley and Warsaw Community high schools.
All student expenses were funded by the following companies: DePuy Synthes, Instrumental Machine & Development, Kiwanis Club of Warsaw, Medtronic, Paragon Medical, Precision Medical Technologies, Kosciusko County Community Foundation, and Zimmer Biomet.
