Stapp Toyota Inspires Educator Spotlight – Manufacturing Futures

Each month Stapp Toyota highlights a different educator within St. Vrain Valley Schools – individuals who are making an impact on their students, staff, and the entire community. This month we headed to the Career Elevation and Technology Center (CETC) to meet with Neil Shupe, Director of Manufacturing at St. Vrain’s new Advanced Manufacturing Academy (AMA) – a program providing students with the opportunity to explore careers in welding, machining, optics and electronics. Over the last year, Neil and his team reclaimed the space vacated by the Innovation Center and transformed it into several state-of-the-art work stations, focusing on career paths within the field of manufacturing.
