Everett’s Fluke Corp. receives Industry Excellence Award from EvCC

Company praised for support for the college and its students that dates back to 1980.

EVERETT — Fluke Corp. has received the Industry Excellence Award as a significant contributor and partner of Everett Community College.

Corey Christmann, vice president of the industrial test equipment manufacturer, accepted the award Thursday at an event at the Fluke campus.

He thanked the college for the award and praised EvCC for its ongoing training programs, which he said are diverse and customizable.

“The faculty we’ve been exposed to up to this point has really been fantastic,” Christmann said.

John Bonner, EvCC’s vice president of Corporate and Workforce Training, presented the award. He said the college has received support from Fluke since 1980.

“Let me thank all of you for being here and giving me the opportunity to present this award on your home turf for the critical partnership that we have enjoyed for many years,” Bonner said.

He noted that his office is just down the road from the Fluke campus on Seaway Boulevard. It was Fluke that donated the land and the blueprints for those offices.

Fluke has also donated equipment for many of the advanced technology programs offered at EvCC, Bonner said.

“You have been there every stop along the way,” Bonner said. “As we’ve changed and have had needs, you’ve been there for us.”

Fluke has also supported students by offering scholarships, which often can mean the difference on whether a student can attend college, Bonner said.

This is the second year that EvCC has given out this award. Last year, the college gave the award to several employers. This year, Fluke was the lone recipient.
