Several valves and valve components were donated by the Wolseley Industrial Group via local company Ferguson Enterprises Inc. to Iowa Central’s Process Technology Program.  Randy Howard, Regional Sales Manager, and Dave Weiss, Ferguson Branch Manager, were on campus Tuesday, June 10, to visit with Process Technology Instructor, Shadd Scharf, about the donation and the Process Technology Program.  These valves will provide valuable hands-on experience for our students as they will be integrated into the valve dissection curricula in the Introduction to Process Technology program.  They will be used in different ways to illustrate the system valve placement and set up.

“I want to thank Ferguson Plumb Supply Company for this donation; having actual valves for the students to work with makes it a better learning experience”, said Shadd Scharf, Iowa Central’s Process Technology instructor.  To find our more information on our Process Technology Program, visit www.iowacentral.edu/industrial_technology/process_technology/index.asp
