LMC’s Stan Kennedy discusses LMC operations and career opportunities with Seminole County Middle-High School welding students
Last week Donalsonville’s Lewis M. Carter Manufacturing (LMC) hosted a group of welding students from Seminole County Middle High School. The group, chaperoned by SCMHS FFA Advisor Dusty Smith, CTAE Director Dr. Cindy Bryant, and SCMHS Principal Shane Purdy, was given a tour of the facility and presented with an opportunity to see the inner workings of the manufacturing operations.
As a leader in producing world class machinery for more than eighty years, LMC offers solutions individually tailored for each of its world-wide customers. From gravity separation machines and destoners to vibratory conveyors, LMC produces custom-built industrial separation equipment for unique processing requirements.
LMC’s Parts and Service Manager, Stan Kennedy, led the group around the different parts of the facility and gave them an initiation to a real-world employment opportunity experience each of them could be a part of upon completion of their high school education.
Following the orientation, the students were offered the opportunity to try their hand at an LMC welding test. A LMC spokesperson commented, “It spoke well of teaching talents of the students’ instructor, Mr. Smith, beacause each student did well enough on their tests to be considered for welding positions employment with LMC if they desire after graduation.
After the tour the group returned to the Seminole County Agricultural facility on the SCMHS campus for lunch and a brief instructional video about LMC’s turnkey shelling facility, Premium Peanut located in Douglas, Georgia, followed by a question and answer session.
As a world class leader and major manufacturer in Georgia, LMC has a vested interest to nurture these kinds of relationships, especially with students curious and eager to know what lies ahead, because their future and success is just as much our own. LMC thanks the students and the local school system for the opportunity to share what the company does and the employment opportunities it offers – right here at home.
Seminole County welding students parti-cipating in the tour included Nicholas Barber, Jesse Smith, Dahveon Kimble, D Jordan Hill, Owen Cross, Austin Robinson, Wendell Craft, Rob Weir, Clayton Burch, Michael Hopson, Kase Barber, Clay Towns, Carson Odom and Peyton Brown.
