"Stearns, Ky., native Amanda Saam graduated in May from the Industrial Maintenance Technology program at Somerset (Ky.) Community College. Earlier this spring, she was a featured speaker at "Learn How to Get More Women in the Picture," an event that took place as part of a National Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science workshop in Versailles, Ky. The event was sponsored by AMTEC (Automotive Manufacturing Technical Education Collaborative) and the Kentucky Community amp; Technical College System's professional development office. Saam recently spoke with Plant Services for a Big Picture Interview about what led her to the program as an adult learner, her experience as the only female graduate in her class, and the opportunities available for women in the industrial maintenance field."
