John Boone, intern at Gorman-Rupp Pump Co.
Never underestimate the value of students. Recently we posted a link to a Boston Valley Terra Cotta project. This restoration firm was quick to credit the University of Buffalo architecture department for introducing the Boston Valley Terra Cotta designers and sculptors to new, high-tech tools.
In Ohio, a similar thing is happening. We received a note from Bruce Weirich, a teacher at Ontario High School, that one of his former Rhino class students is an intern at Gorman-Rupp Pump Co. Tyler Lasusa and two other Ohio State students are working in 3D modeling at the pump company, adding new perspective to traditional methods.
