Local business donates equipment to technology, engineering classroom

Teacher shows a class of six students how to use a saw in a technology workshopThe technology and engineering classroom at Fonda-Fultonville High School got a boost on Tuesday with the donation of some much-needed equipment.

The Keymark Corporation of Fonda donated a scroll saw along with several blades. It was delivered by Keymark representative Shaun Schriner on behalf of owner William Keller. Technology teacher Barbara Barker accepted the donation during her Nanoscience class, which will use the saw for its next project. The equipment will also be used by students enrolled in the district’s engineering program called Project Lead the Way.

“We’re grateful to have this equipment donated by Keymark,” Barker said, remarking about the saw’s brand. “We would have had to purchase a new scroll saw this year, and it would have been difficult to get something of this quality. We’re thankful to have Keymark’s support. A donated pieceĀ of equipment certainly saves the district some money and will be well-used by the students.
