Trabuco Hills H.S. Supported by the HAAS Foundation

Trabuco Hills High School opened the Gary Sladek Legacy Haas Technical Education Center in February 2o14, less than a year after the school’s career specialist, Bridget Mondt, heard Sladek speak at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa about the need for manufacturing employees.

Sladek’s company, the Anaheim Haas Factory Outlet, donated the $160,000 Haas mill and lathe machines to Trabuco Hills High to transform the auto shop, which had been vacant three years, into the Manufacturing Engineering Technology classroom.

“It’s a great opportunity for them,” Mondt said. “This isn’t something you would normally see at a high school.”
