Johnson College Receives ARC Funds
U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright (PA-08) visited Johnson College with the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance (NEPA Alliance) to announce a $75,000 federal grant for Johnson College through the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) to help them expand workforce training in skilled trades.
The school will use the funds to establish a Mobile Training Laboratory to provide hands-on learning for high school students enrolled in Johnson College’s dual enrollment and Industry Fast Track programs offered at a number of rural regional school districts. The laboratory will take technology and equipment not available within the school district to offer real world experience to students and give them a head start on various associate degree programs at Johnson College, thus reducing the time for entry into the workforce.
NEPA Alliance is proud to have assisted with this grant and we thank Congressman Cartwright for his support of economic development programs like ARC that help create and retain jobs in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
