Calsonic Kansei has followed up its commitment to the City of Lewisburg of a year ago with a second $100,000 donation to provide improvements to Rock Creek Park. Last year, the company worked with the city to provide amphitheatre seating and underground utilities to Rock Creek Park and provided the city with a $100,000 donation to assist in the funding of the improvements. 
This year, the company, that is Lewisburg's largest industrial employer, donated another $100,000 to help the city acquire additional properties around the park and increase the park's footprint and green space. 
COO of CKNA Eric Huch presented Mayor Jim Bingham with a check for the project during MFG Day at MCHS where CKNA and other local manufacturers set up booths to interact with students about their companies, careers at their companies and the pathways to achieve those careers. 
Special Guest TN ECD Commissioner Randy Boyd joined the ceremony following the Commissioner's Tour of Spot Lowe Technology Center and his visit with students and industries during MFG Day at MCHS. Pictured are (l-r) Mayor Jim Bingham, CKNA COO Eric Huch and TN ECD Commissioner Randy Boyd.
