Workforce students at Texarkana College will have access to a new, state-of-the-art 3D printer thanks to a partnership with the Arconic Foundation. Today, the Arconic Foundation presented the Texarkana College Foundation with $20,000 to purchase the AXIOM Three-dimensional Dual Direct Printer and the EVO Additive Manufacturing Center, which will revolutionize learning for our students and community. The check presentation took place at 2 p.m. at Arconic Mill Products, 300 Alumax Rd, Nash, TX 75569.
