Advanced Manufacturing Program

Advanced Manufacturing Program

Denison is an active partner in a unique effort to develop a talent pipeline of middle-skills workers for manufacturing occupations.

The Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) was created by local industries, school districts, Grayson College, Sherman Economic Development Corporation, Denison Development Alliance, and Workforce Solutions Texoma.

The program is a dual credit initiative within the Texoma area that allows students to complete college courses starting as early as the 10th grade. Students learn skills unique to Advanced Manufacturing and gain real-world, hands-on training through an industry-driven curriculum. Upon completion, students can directly enter the workforce while continuing their education at Grayson College, or continue their education at a four-year institution.

Students in the AMP program attend tuition free. The area’s top industries and other key entities have committed scholarship dollars to cover tuition and books for each student. These industries are seeking the next generation employee to operate their cutting-edge manufacturing plants. They are committed to providing a challenging and rewarding opportunity for high school students interested in gaining lifetime skills.
