The Advanced Manufacturing Program at the Mahoning County Career & Technical Center was presented a grant check of $10,000 from the Gene Haas Foundation at the Mahoning Valley Manufacturers Coalition meeting last week.

The grant is given to schools to support scholarships and NIMS credentialing for manufacturing programs. The funds are to be given to students currently enrolled or who will be enrolling at MCCTC in a machining-based training and/or engineering program at the postsecondary level.

Ex-Detroit auto executive charged


A former union official in Detroit has been charged with making more than $40,000 in purchases for herself and others with money from Fiat Chrysler.

Virdell King is the fourth person charged in the case. The government says Al Iacobelli, a Fiat Chrysler labor executive, gave credit cards to some officials at the United Auto Workers. Bills were paid with money from a company-sponsored training center.

The conspiracy charge against King was filed as a criminal information, which means a guilty plea is likely.

King retired in 2016 after working in the UAW’s Chrysler department. A message seeking comment was left for her attorney Friday.
