Mr. Michael Ennis, Manufacturing Engineer at Harris Corporation, was one of the distinguished FLATE 2009 awardees recognized for his outstanding contributions to promote technology education and career awareness in support of manufacturing. Mike was very instrumental in setting up several Brevard Community College classes at their Harris location, now known as Eastern Florida State College. Mike has dedicated his free time to helping young people succeed in STEM fields. His volunteer efforts include EFSC-Industrial Advisory Board, FLATE-Visiting Committee, EDC of the Space Coast, EDC-Industrial Council, MASC – Chairman, Space Tec – NATAC, Certec – NATAC, MSSC Industrial Advisory Council, Junior Achievement of Brevard, and FloridaMakes. In addition, Mike had developed STEM-based curricula for colleges across Florida, teaches college engineering technology courses and maintains a program at Harris that helps technicians go back to school.
