Earlier this year, the Horological Society of New York (HSNY) made history by making its first donation to an American horological institution - the watchmaking program at Paris Junior College.
Together with the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute, HSNY pledged $20,000 to Paris Junior College at a critical time when only nine full-time watchmaking schools remain in the US.
Today, the watchmaking program is thriving and paving the way for the next generation of watchmakers. Last week, The Paris News, a newspaper based in Paris, Texas, where the college is located, featured a front-page article on the flourishing courses taught by Paris Junior College Watchmaking Instructor Stanley McMahan. HSNY is proud to help advance the art and science of horology and wishes all students continued success.
