Kennametal Inc., the tooling and advanced materials manufacturer, graduated a third class of students from its Young Engineers Program on Thursday.

The program, operated by the Kennametal Foundation, seeks to attract high school juniors and seniors into engineering and manufacturing careers. To date, the 15-week program has graduated 70 students, including a first class of students recently graduated from Kennametal's Solon, Ohio, location.

The company started the program in 2011 in partnership with the Greater Latrobe School District. Students engage in classroom discussion and hands-on projects and are mentored by Kennametal engineers.

“We need to do our part to help build the manufacturing work force of the future, and Kennametal is excited to be leading the way,” said CEO Carlos Cardoso.
