The donation of two pieces of manufacturing equipment by a local business is helping change the lives of students at Luxemburg-Casco High School. D&S Machine Service in Luxemburg recently donated a vertical machining center and a small lathe to be used by the school’s metals classes and Spartan Machining course. Students are already familiar with the growing fabrication and machine shop because of the time spent by the business’ employees that work with them on a regular basis. Luxemburg-Casco School District Glenn Schlender is proud of the relationship they have developed with local businesses like D&S Machine Service.
Over the last year, D&S Machine Service has made similar donations to other area districts to help generate an interest in manufacturing and to create future employees. Owner Russ Nowak estimates the company has impacted between 70 and 100 students already with a small group of Luxemburg-Casco students and alumni working at the company either as full-time or summer employees.
