Career and technical educators from the Lafayette Parish School System took a field trip to Frank’s International Machine Center Tuesday. Representatives of the four LPSS robotics teams toured the facility to learn more about the latest innovations in the oil and gas industry. General Manager Joey Lerouge says Frank’s hopes to provide the next step for members of the robotics teams once they graduate high school and enter into the work force.
“Frank’s International has one of the only apprenticeship programs in the state of Louisiana. We’re very proactive when it comes to training young adults and as far as their visit today, it should benefit the students in their class.””
Along with the chance to see the latest in technology, Frank’s also donated $20,000 to the robotics programs.
