Columbia Gorge Community College is significantly expanding job training for students pursuing careers in manufacturing, metals fabrication, agriculture, and other technology-based careers with the purchase of industry-standard advanced manufacturing equipment. This past week, Advanced Manufacturing instructor Robert Wells-Clark worked hard as that equipment was delivered to the Regional Skill Center to get it set up for incoming students and the start of Fall term.The equipment is the latest addition to the college’s Columbia Gorge Regional Skills Center, built to provide previously underserved students with in-demand technical skills historically only offered outside the Columbia Gorge.Google, which operates data centers in The Dalles, provided a grant of $85,000 to Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation to purchase and transport the equipment, which includes computer numerical controlled milling and lathe equipment from Prigel Machines in Odell. Owner Brian Prigel is another champion of the college, offering technical guidance and other support. The machines are used in a variety of industries including manufacturing, agriculture, aerospace and wood products.“Industry partnerships like this elevate the college and provide opportunities for our students to excel,” said Wendy Patton, executive director of the college foundation.“This equipment is part of the future of automated manufacturing -- everything from farm equipment to furniture to airplanes,” added the college’s president, Dr. Marta Cronin. “Our students can now master this technology before they enter the workforce, launching them into family-wage jobs.” ...
