Northeast Community College has received federal grant funding to help develop a new program focusing on manufacturing education. The announcement came during Thursday's Board of Governor's Meeting. During their meeting, the governors voted unanimously to accept the grant for nearly 247-thousand dollars from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Northeast officials say the grant will be used as seed money to help develop an Industrial Manufacturing program that will teach students a variety of skills related to jobs in the manufacturing sector. Northeast plans to grow it soon from a certificate program into a one-year diploma and then eventually into a two-year associate of applied science degree.
Northeast officials say the Department of Labor grant program's goal is to help fill jobs in the high need areas of career and technical education.
