PHOENIX, MD – The Woodworking Machinery Industry Assn. provided a $10,000 grant to Pittsburg State University to boost the university’s wood technology program. The grant is part of the WMIA’s goal to increase the number of young people pursuing careers in woodworking technology. PSU, located in Pittsburg, KS, and the WMIA have worked together since 1988. Of $100,000 in scholarships presented since 1988, $46,000 has gone to PSU students.

“Pittsburg State University’s wood technology program is turning out top quality young professionals,” said Bill Miller, CAE, WMIA’s executive vice president. “Our grant will allow them to do more with their students who, in turn, will do more for both WMIA members and the North American woodworking industry in the future.”
