Indiana Machining Trade Association Picks High School Contest Winner

HNHS1A Huntington North High School student won the Indiana National Tooling Machining Association (INTMA) High School Machining Contest in January by demonstrating proficiency in different machining operations.

Sixteen high-schoolers competed in the INTMA High School Machining Contest Jan. 19. Brandon Satterthwaite emerged on top, winning $250 awarded by Carbide, Cutting Tools, Abrasives Inc., of Indianapolis, and $250 from S&J Precision Inc., of New Albany, Ind. His school also received $1,000 for being the first-place school. The Huntington County Tab reports that the money will be spent on tools for the school’s machining program.

The students were able to attend the contest and pay entry fees by machining precision parts in a school program for local companies such as Bad Dad Custom Motorcycle Finishes of Fort Wayne, Ind. The Huntington North H.S. vocational machining program trains students on machining fundamentals and helps them earn college credits for local colleges Ivy Tech and Vincennes University.
