VANCOUVER, WA - TigerStop LLC demonstrated its support for WoodLINKS USA by donating a SawGear unit to Kelso High School, Kelso, WA.
Cory Torppa won the portable, length measuring automation tool during a WoodLINKS in-service educational conference recently held at the TigerStop factory in Vancouver.
In addition to the donated SawGear being used in the wood technology program to make residential cabinets, another SawGear will be used in a new program at Kelso High School next year called Geometry in Construction. This program will involve building a house, teaching geometry to more than 100 students per day.
WoodLINKS USA is an industry driven, secondary and post-secondary woodworking partnership program, which helps to build and maintain a strong, skilled workforce.
“We believe the next generation of carpenters and woodworkers will be more technology savvy,” said Spencer Dick, CEO and founder of TigerStop. “It is our obligation as the industry leader to give back to the community, reach a younger generation by continuously developing innovative, cutting edge products, and help groom them by involvement in programs such as WoodLINKS.”
