Turner College & Career High School students training in the HVAC program are gaining more real-world experience on machinery thanks to a generous equipment donation from Goodman Manufacturing.
This November, the air conditioning and heating manufacturer donated equipment — worth approximately $6,000 – to the HVAC program taught by Patty Hayes. Pearland Livestock Show and Career Expo president James Gilbert, who also serves as a member of the Northern Brazoria County Education Alliance and is a consultant for Goodman Manufacturing was able to facilitate this donation for the TCCHS HVAC program.
“The Turner HVAC program and students will greatly benefit from this donation. This equipment can be used for students to gain valuable skills to help them in real life and gain certifications. Students will walk out of this program greatly prepared for any job in the HVAC industry. I can’t thank Goodman enough for all their contributions to our community,” Hayes said.
Through hands-on training and experience on industry equipment, the HVAC program prepares students for careers in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and electrical field.
