Owens receives $100,000 gift for new DANA Training Center

        Owens Community College received a gift of $100,000 from the Owens Alumni Association for the new Dana Advanced Manufacturing Training Center.
        The donation came seven weeks after receiving a $1 million investment from Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN).
        The announcement was made at the Foundation and Alumni Association’s Annual Dinner Meeting Oct. 17. The gift will result in naming rights within the center and will help to establish the Owens Alumni Association Advanced Manufacturing Scholarship.
        “The Alumni Association is excited to be part of the Dana Advanced Manufacturing Training Center through this significant investment, while also establishing an endowed scholarship to directly benefit those students seeking degrees and certificates in the manufacturing and skilled trades areas,” said Tom Daniels, president of the Owens Community College Alumni Association. “This facility will be a game-changer for Northwest Ohio, and we are doing our part to help advance the region."
        The modernized facility will transform the college’s ability to meet the region’s challenges of developing and training a skilled workforce for manufacturing employers.
        Labor data forecasts more than 2,100 advanced manufacturing job openings paying an average annual salary of $63,000 in Lucas, Wood and Hancock counties in the next five years.
        The Dana Center will provide highly technical and integrated training in a clean and safe environment conducive to learning. It will also provide corporate partners with access to offices and conference space close to technical labs, classrooms and faculty offices.
