Community College Journal: Metal Meets Mettle

Legendary rockers fund grant initiative for getting students into the workforce.

Stacy Yonnone remembers working on cars with her father in the family garage,
a radio nearby belting out tunes from a local rock station. The world-renowned heavy metal band Metallica was on constant rotation back then, melting listeners’ minds with tunes such as “Master of Puppets” and “Enter Sandman.” 

Today, Yonnone is working with a different kind of heavy metal as a machinist apprentice for Bantam Tools in Peekskill, New York. This career opportunity transpired due to a collaboration between SUNY Westchester Community College and Metallica’s foundation, All Within My Hands (AWMH).
