"We need new students graduating who can go into technology jobs.  It's a fast growing sector and not a lot of people are qualified for these technology jobs.  We need more people in the science, technology and engineering fields.  We had a couple of interns at the Prineville plant and they're now going to pursue technology careers."

 

The 100-thousand dolalrs for the high school will go toward the STEM program, which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.
