EDCO Partners With Maryland Public Schools

Words: Dan KamysEDCO Partners With Maryland Public Schools

EDCO is partnering with Frederick County, Md., Public Schools. For several years, students from the county's Career & Technology Center have visited EDCO's manufacturing headquarters in Frederick. The CTC teaches high school students trade and job-ready skills. Welding students tour EDCO for first-hand accounts of daily responsibilities.

Beginning this fall, EDCO offers student opportunities within its video production department. EDCO constantly produces online and DVD training videos. CTC students are gaining experience working with EDCO's video professional to storyboard, film and edit these projects.

"Video training and webinars help our customers tremendously," says Jason Stanczyk, EDCO Marketing. "We've been looking for ways to expand EDCO's multimedia reach and were blown away by Frederick County Schools' video and graphic arts departments. These students are learning advanced skills, and EDCO wants to help. This partnership benefits both EDCO customers and our hometown."
