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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
