Approximately 48 students at the Academies of Racine Case High School in Racine, Wisconsin, will have access to new manufacturing education opportunities for the 2022-23 school year through the SME Education Foundation, the philanthropic arm of SME, a 90-yearold non-profit association committed to advancing manufacturing technology and developing a skilled workforce.
The Flagstar Bank Foundation has announced a significant contribution to the SME Education Foundation to implement an SME PRIME program at Pontiac High School.
