Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
Kellogg student Darrick Owen wrote an essay that won him a Realigning America scholarship and earned the college’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center one year’s use of a state-of-the-art laser shaft alignment system.
The awards are part of VibrAlign’s ongoing Realigning America scholarship program. Every year the program awards scholarships to the students who submit the best essays on the importance of properly aligned machinery.
Several months ago Owen submitted his essay to VibrAlign describing his experiences learning precision shaft alignment using a laser alignment system. The essay was selected to win Owen a $500 scholarship and the school a year’s use of the Fixturlaser EVO laser alignment system.
According to David Zdrojewski, VibrAlign chief executive officer, “We believe it’s important to support the training of America’s future industrial workforce so they can compete on the world stage. We see the current workforce growing older and it’s time to prepare a new generation. It’s part of our commitment to Realigning America.” Zdrojewski personally delivered the equipment to Calhoun and provided training to faculty who will use the equipment in their classes.
Zdrojewski founded VibrAlign in 1983 and has been serving as CEO since 1996. VibrAlign, committed to Realigning America, has served an array of industrial customers from defense contractors to paper makers and specializes in alignment systems, training, calibration and field service.
