Wilmington, NC- Wilmington Grill recently awarded five Cape Fear Community College students with $1,000 scholarships to support manufacturing in education. The five Engineering Technology students awarded scholarships were William Brown, David Eakins, Daniel Joye, Christopher Marshall, and Eric Rambeaut.
The scholarship presentation was a part of the 2016 Manufacturing Day Open House, which invited high school and Cape Fear Community College students into the Wilmington Grill warehouse to showcase vocational opportunities. Visiting students toured Wilmington Grill’s campus, ate lunch (which was made on a Wilmington Grill), and met the owner and employees of the company.
Wilmington Grill produces stainless steel cooking systems. Founded in 1996, the company’s grills are sold nationwide. “My family and this business has been all about promoting manufacturing as a career. We love building and making things, and we want the community to get excited about it as well. We are thrilled to give these scholarships to CFCC,” said Jon Barber, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Wilmington Grill Company.
