Tyler Union team members, at least the Auburn fans, couldn’t wait to see the freshly painted Iron Man.
Every year, Iron Man is painted the school colors of the winning team in the Auburn vs. Alabama football game and he remains that color 365 days until the next game. The Auburn/Alabama rivalry is considered one of the most heated football rivalries in college football. Together Alabama and Auburn account for 33 SEC titles and the two teams won an impressive four straight BCS National Championship Games from 2009-2012 (Alabama-2009, 2011, 2012 and Auburn 2010).
The Iron Man tradition was started by team members as way to celebrate their team’s victory and “gloat” a little all year long. Alabama fans will just have to glance the other way when they get to work every day because those Auburn colors are here to stay, at least until the next game.
Congratulations Auburn fans – War Eagle!
On Friday, February 28, a group of eleven STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students from the University of Alabama visited M&H Valve Company in Anniston, Alabama, for a plant tour. M&H will be selecting a student from this group to participate in an internship this summer.
The University of Alabama STEM Program focuses on attracting high-quality undergraduate students majoring in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. The program is an innovative approach to engage students early on as undergraduates and employ nontraditional-classroom methods to allow top students to complete the MBA in one additional calendar year. The purpose of the path is to provide high-achieving students with the business knowledge needed to successfully manage businesses.
McWane is always proud to assist the younger generation in reaching their goals. We hope the STEM students from the University of Alabama enjoyed and benefited from their visit!
