Auburn Hills, MI -The Murray Percival Co. has welcomed students from Detroit Cristo Rey High School as a part of the school’s Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP).
Detroit Cristo Rey is a Catholic High School providing high-quality college prep education to students from economically disadvantaged families in Detroit. Currently DCR has 350 students and 20 teachers with an astounding 100%college placement for their students since the implementation of the work-study program 7 years ago.
The unique, nationaly successful work-study model, enables each student to earn a portion of their educational costs by working in entry-level positions in companies in the Detroit area. Through the work-study program, the students gain invaluable experience in professional environments enabling them to make informed decisions about their abilities and their future. Murray Percival is the beneficiary of the student workers’ productivity and contributions – allowing all to partake in developing the talent pool for Detroit’s future.
Murray Percival student employees work throughout the school year, beginning the day after Labor Day and working until the middle of June. By combining two common business concepts–employee leasing and job sharing—the company achieves uncommon results.
The Murray Percival Co. will support two students this year, Jovany Diaz-Don (Sophomore) and Emilo Zuniga (Freshman). While working at the Murray Percival Co. Jovany and Emilo will gain experience in numerous departments such as customer service, accounting and sales from which they will not only acquire technical and business skills but will also learn lifelong behaviours that they can carry with them into college and beyond in their professional futures.
The CWSP model is used successfully by twenty-two other schools around the country. Questions? Comments? or just want to learn more about the work study program this year? Give the Murray Percival Co. a call at (800) 405-1730 or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hurricane Florence has brought sustained winds of 90 mph and will continue to bring catastrophic flash flooding to the Carolinas and surrounding states.
A buoy off the North Carolina coast has recorded waves nearly 30 feet (9 meters) high as Florence churned toward shore. Forecasters said conditions will deteriorate as the storm pushes ashore this morning near the North Carolina/South Carolina coastline and make its way slowly inland. It’s surge could cover most of the Carolina coast putting it as much as 11 feet (3.4m) under water, and days of downpours could unload more than 3 feet (0.9m) of rain, causing severe flooding.
Over 2 million coastal residents have had mandatory evacuation orders and another 8 million people live in areas covered by hurricane and tropical storm warnings. We have many customers and partners that are among these in harm’s way and with the threat to life being a true reality and wide spread devastation to people’s homes expected, the Murray Percival Co. has already started to raise funds for emergency medicine, supplies and other humanitarian aid. We join many others donating to AmeriCares who will be responding to the urgent needs of the thousands of people facing the potential impact of Hurricane Florence from now and many days to come.
We would like to encourage others to join us in supporting the clean-up and help bring aid to the people directly affected but the storm.
AmeriCares, states that “Every $10 donated = $100 in aid and your gift’s impact is multiplied because we deliver medicine and aid to local health providers that live & work in the community. Your gift goes where it is needed most, because it’s put in the hands of people the community knows and trusts.”
To Donate please follow this link: Murray Percival and AmeriCares
We continue to think of all of our customers, suppliers, friends and family that are being affected by this treacherous storm and wish them well.

Which Conformal Coating to use is a question that we get asked frequently.
However, Conformal Coating application is AS important, if not MORE important than selecting the right material for your application. Even the best Conformal Coating, if it is applied poorly, will provide inadequate levels of protection.
This is due to a number of factors;
- The thickness the coating is applied
- the level of coverage achieved
- and how well the coating sticks to the board and it’s components
It is important therefore to select the right application method for the coating selected.
