Iconic metal band Metallica is teaming up with WSU Tech to enhance their technical education programs.

WSU Tech will use the money to support their “Women in Manufacturing” program in aviation sheet metal, machining, and welding. The Metallica Scholars awards are designed to provide support for relevant job skill training for community college students and leverage the popularity of the band to encourage career and technical education.
