The AMM crew toured the unique facilities of Itawamba Community College (ICC) in Tupelo, MS.
What makes this visit particularly special is ICC has a Workforce Development & Training department and lab, which gives students a hands-on experience in the Manufacturing field of their choice while obtaining a college degree.
