Who Will You Honor?

Do you have a family member, friend, colleague, educator, mentor or employee who spent their career in manufacturing and have a story you'd like to share? We'd love to include their story in The Manufacturing Ledger and offer several ways for you to do just that, with a donation that will help fund the American Precision Museum's operations and outreach to the next generation of innovators.

Each Honoree's Profile includes a profile picture, career history, any awards achieved and pictures that help document their career. We also encourage Honoree's to share a quote as to what inspired them to follow a career path in manufacturing, to help inspire young generations that visit our museum physically or online. So, who would you like to honor?
