Michelle Stofan, vice president of Garner Products spoke to Rocklin High School students during the Manufacturing Week student outreach. “I had a great group of students that were very interested in what I had to say. I brought my PD-5 and SSD-1 physical destroyers to show them. The minute it went on the table, I had students asking me questions and fully
engaged. My 10-minute presentation turned into 45 minutes of questions,
stories and them showing us their projects,” Michelle said about the student enthusiasm she experienced.
