Copiah-Lincoln Community College recently received a donation from Georgia Pacific Monticello for its Automation & Control Technology program.

The donation will help supply students with additional equipment, such as transmitters, piping, meters and programmable logic controllers to monitor, troubleshoot and calibrate processes such as flow, pressure, level and temperature. These are all vital skills to ensure students are well-prepared to enter the workplace.

“We are very grateful for the generous donation that allows us to purchase modern industrial instruments and equipment that are vital components in many processing and manufacturing industries such as Georgia-Pacific,” said Mandy Case, program coordinator of Automation & Control Technology.
