Machining program open house set for June 21

June 8, 2021

ASHLAND, Ky. – Dan Pancake, program coordinator for the Computerized Manufacturing and Machining program at ACTC will be hosting a “mini open house” where incoming students to the program can visit the shop and meet him before Fall classes begin. 

Prospective students who are considering enrolling in the program are also invited to attend the open house. 

The open house will be June 21 from 9 A.M to 12 P.M. at the ACTC Technology Drive Campus (TDC). The physical address of the campus is 902 Technology Drive Grayson Kentucky 41143. The campus is located near Grayson, Kentucky – just off Interstate 64, exit 179. 

“The open house is a time set aside to familiarize prospective and future students with the location of the classroom/lab and is a meet and greet for me and those students,” said Pancake. “I will have examples of the various kinds of work they will be training for, as well as a live demonstration of the machines in action.”

Enrollment Services will be available to assist with any questions as well. 

Registration is not required, but those who would like to RSVP can do so by visiting

Visitors can check-in at the TDC Welcome Center upon arrival. 

Pancake also announced that two of his current students have been selected to participate in a paid internship with Danieli USA’s Ashland location.  

“I am excited that Danieli has sought our participation in a new internship program for machinists. They have brought two of our current students in to begin a summer schedule of training and we are hopeful if all goes well they can continue through the fall semester,” he said. “The pay for these two students is $15 per hour while they are training, and if they continue with the company after their schooling is complete, the pay is considerably higher.”
