Cummins, Inc. presented a check to the Dunkirk City School District Technology Department during a recent board of education meeting for the purchase of a classroom version of a computer numerical control machine. The CNC machine is being offered through an $18,770.53 grant given to the school district and will help students learn the latest machining and manufacturing skills. The school district and Cummins have had a partnership for the past three years, allowing students to pursue paid internships with the technology manufacturing company.
