The Graphic Communications classes of the Fred P. Hamilton Career Center recently visited T & R Graphics, located in Seneca.  Owner, Ray Murphy, demonstrated the screen-printing process on a manual and an automatic press. Students learned about the technique of preparing screens along with the proper techniques of porous printing, including how to pull the squeegee and how certain angles affect the print process.

Mr. Matt Morton demonstrated the car wrapping process on an ambulance for the Greenville Health System. During the demonstration, students learned about the properties of vinyl, the correct installation method, and the benefits of wrapping a vehicle. Students were also excited to learn that some of NASCAR’s biggest drivers and racing teams use T & R Graphics for their race cars.

With an aim to go beyond academics, industrial visits provide students a practical perspective on the world of work. It provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices.  Many HCC students will be involved in paid internships during the second year of their program.

The Hamilton Career Center is thankful for local partnerships with business and industry, like T & R Graphics, that both strengthen the School District of Oconee County and business and industries throughout our county.
