WJTV 12 “What’s Working” visited Multicraft International to learn more about its Innovation Academy partnership with Pelahatchie High School.

Multicraft is working alongside Dr. Bryan Marshall, the principal of Pelahatchie High School, to enhance the education and training of Pelahatchie High School students interested in a technical field. The Academy, funded by the Rankin County School district, will provide a 2 year manufacturing course curriculum which will lead to an Industrial Maintenance Technology Certificate.

This program, free to students, will also count as college credit for students who want to pursue a 2 or 4 year degree. Through the two-year course study, Multicraft will sponsor paid internships during the students’ senior year along with a work study program during the summer before their senior year.
