MILFORD, N.H. (AP) - Two New Hampshire manufacturers are developing a course to prepare high school students for jobs in the field.
Hitchiner Manufacturing Co., Inc., in Milford, and Spraying Systems Co., in Merrimack, are working with Milford High School teachers and administrators on the Manufacturing Exploration and Externship program.
It will run for a semester and include both classroom instruction and a two-day-a-week externship where students will get hands-on experience at one of the sponsoring employers. They will earn $12 an hour for their work. Students also will be able to earn college credits through the Community College System of New Hampshire.
The program will be offered to up to 20 upperclassmen starting in the fall of 2019 and would complement existing machining and engineering programs already in place at Milford High School.
