Diman is thrilled to accept a Steel Dragon Tools 1224 Pipe Threading Machine for our Electricity Program through a generous donation from the Diman Bengal Education Foundation (DBEF), Rene Lachapelle (RALCO), and Jerry Donovan (Donovan Electric & Alarm, G & J Property Management).
The machine was donated in memory of Emmanuel Gaspar, a 1993 graduate of the Electricity Program, who passed away while working for RALCO in 2001. Lachapelle donated it to honor Gaspar’s contribution to his then-startup company.
Lachapelle and Donovan are vice chairmen of the DBEF and are both graduates of the Electrical shop.
