Bodine Aluminum Donates $10,000 To P-L Tech Rebuild

Bodine Aluminum in Troy, recently presented a $10,000 check to Pike-Lincoln Technical Center for use in the rebuilding of the facility.
The main building of Pike-Lincoln Technical Center was destroyed in a fire on Dec. 2, 2011.  These funds may be used as local match for grant funding through the State of Missouri to purchase equipment or building materials.
Pike-Lincoln Technical Center has served the Pike, Lincoln and surrounding communities since 1973 through the offering of career and technical education programs to high school and adult students.  Current daytime programs include Administrative Business Technology, Auto Collision, Auto Services, Computer and Networking Technology, Diesel Technology, Digital Design, Health Sciences, Paramedic, Practical Nursing and Welding.  Students who attend Pike-Lincoln Technical Center receive skilled education leading directly to employment or further education after high school through apprenticeships, technical, community or four-year colleges.
Numerous tech center graduates have gone to work for Bodine Aluminum over the years. Pike-Lincoln Technical Center graduates often stay in the local community.
“We are excited to have the donation and commitment from Bodine Aluminum to help us continue our tradition of preparing residents to be productive employees and community residents,” said Krista Flowers, director of the school.
Bodine Aluminum has long been a supporter of the local community.  Many of Bodine’s philanthropic efforts focus on programs that enhance education and help foster technical skills of local students.  The recent donation to Pike-Lincoln Technical Center was presented by Terry Henderson, General Manager of Bodine Aluminum and Kathryn Ragsdale, Specialist for Corporate Affairs, Toyota, Bodine Aluminum.
