NTC receiving a $550,000 grant for equipment

Posted:

Northcentral Technical College will be receiving a $550,000 grant to help buy new equipment for students.

The grant comes from The Greenheck Foundation.

Administrators at the college said the grant will cover the costs of new technology to train students studying electro-mechanics.

They said all of the new equipment will help students be ready for what the industry is looking for in new employees.

"It really shows the community that yes, there's a need for electro-mechanical people, companies are willing to pay money to get you trained for that, they're definitely willing to hire and our community will continue to grow," said NTC Associate Dean, Greg Cisewski.

NTC officials said they still need to raise $300,000 dollars in the community for the equipment, to raise a total of $850,000.
