TG Missouri Corporation and Ranken Technical College teamed up to provide an in-depth tour to nearly 20 regional students enrolled in the Prodigy Learning Academy located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Under the leadership of school founder Russell Grammer, the school offers a Christian-based education to a diverse student population. The tour was part of the school’s initiative to familiarize the students with various career opportunities available at local companies.
The groups toured TG Missouri Safety System buildings 1, 2 and 10 where they learned about the manufacturing of airbags, steering wheels and inflators. Ranken staff members also provided a tour of the new Ranken Technical facility located in Perryville. The school currently has 33 students in three programs- Information Technology, Industrial Engineering Technology and Welding. A fourth program – Diesel Mechanics- will be added later this year.
