Finisar Corp. joined a host of manufacturing firms to provide financial support for area students involved in the Advanced Manufacturing Program. The company, which is among Texoma’s newest manufacturers, presented a $25,000 on Wednesday afternoon to help fund the program.
The AMP program has been expanding in recent years. It grew from a handful of students the first year to more than 80 students this year. The program is designed to provide college credit, as well as training and networking, for area high school students hoping to enter the manufacturing sector in the area.
