Re: “Assembly Required: Vermont Tech's New Manufacturing Degree Program Builds Better Workers

"Two years ago, GW approached Vermont Tech to help alter those perceptions. As part of the company's long-term strategic plan to grow its local workforce (see below) it decided, in the words of VMEC's Zider, "to put some skin in the game." GW donated $35,000 toward Vermont Tech's new Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory, one of five new manufacturing labs on the Randolph Center campus."

"It was quiet and student-free last week during a tour of Vermont Tech's new $2 million manufacturing training facility. "Shop class" doesn't look the way it did 20 years ago."

GW Plastics donated 35,000. Where did the other 1 million 900 thousand come from?

Who are the others that made this happen?
