Lucas, KY – Each year Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) awards the Presidential Scholarship to two students at the annual Glasgow/Barren County Industry Appreciation Week breakfast held this year at Barren River State Park on Friday, September 14, 2018.

One scholarship is presented to an employee of the recognized Industry of the Year in Barren County and the other is presented to a Allied Health and Nursing student enrolled at the SKYCTC Glasgow Health campus.

Thomas Goldsmith was selected to receive the Industry of the Year Scholarship from SKYCTC’s Glasgow Technology Campus.

At other manufacturing facilities, his past jobs included manufacturing supervisor, technical leader, and maintenance apprentice. Thomas has the desire to learn more in the Industrial Maintenance area and wants to advance to higher levels within Federal-Mogul.  He enjoys troubleshooting and problem-solving. Thomas says he is looking forward to learning the technical aspects of running industrial equipment and contributing to the air disc expansion project at FM.
