– Rep. Marla Brown (R-Lawrence) today announced the Lawrence County Career and Technical Center in New Castle will receive an $85,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) for the purchase of new equipment aligned to training students in high-demand occupations.
“Career and technical education can provide incredible opportunities for students to pursue good-paying jobs in industries critical to our economy,” said Brown. “This grant will help more individuals seize those opportunities and achieve a lifetime of success.”
There are more than 80 career and technical centers in Pennsylvania that offer a combination of classes and hands-on-learning programs. Thousands of students earn industry credentials or certifications for local jobs, so they graduate on a path to success.
