A 2014 A.I. Prince Technical High School graduate was recently awarded the “Bill Walthouse” award by Asnuntuck Community College, the college’s most prestigious award given to a graduating manufacturing student.
Patricia Concho, who was in the Automatic Manufacturing Technology student while at A.I. Prince, recently received the annual award – named in honor of the college’s former employer liaison, Bill Walthouse.
“Patty exemplifies the quality of student our technical high schools are developing and training for today’s workforce,” said CTHSS Superintendent Dr. Nivea Torres. “We are very proud of Patty and look forward to the contributions she will continue to make to our economy.”
The Automated Manufacturing Technology Course at A.I. Prince is designed for students who are seeking to pursue a 2-year or 4-year degree in the area of manufacturing or mechanical engineering or related field. Students are also trained to seek immediate employment as a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) operator or programmer, engineering technician, or computer-aided designer or illustrator.
