SHERMAN, Texas -- The Advanced Manufacturing Program at Grayson College had its year-end celebration on Monday.

The program lets high school students learn manufacturing skills and get hands-on training by taking dual-credit college courses.

Students from Pottsboro, Whitesboro, Sherman and Denison will earn more than 40 hours' of college credit, and will have their tuition paid in full by the time they graduate.

"If you drive around the industries in Denison or Sherman you will see 'now hiring' signs at most of them," said Emerson plant manager Mark Anderson. "So kind of creating our own brand of manufacturing fold starting in high school, I think that's a huge success for us."

Four students who started in the program last year will be the first to graduate in May 2019.
