Anniston Army Depot hosted a tour of 21 students from the Alabama School for the Deaf April 24.
The students, high school seniors, saw firsthand the contributions of ANAD and the Anniston Munitions Center's hearing impaired employees.
Employees highlighted on the tour were:
• Amanda Walker, a visual information assistant in the Strategic Communications Office. Walker told the students how she assists with all the various communications media used by the depot.
• Jason Morgan, a small arms repairer. He took students on a tour through the Small Arms Repair Facility and showcased the capabilities and processes performed there.
• Barbara Chess, who works in Transportation for Anniston Munitions Center. She detailed her 32-year federal career and shared the tools she uses on a daily basis to perform her job.
• Henry Benefield and Shane Black from the Directorate of Production. The duo showcased a M113 vehicle for the students, letting them see what the Upholstery Shop does to outfit each vehicle during the overhaul process.
Throughout the tour, students peppered the hosts with questions, learning what they might be able to do to enhance their skills and knowledge following their time in high school.
