West Central School Receives Grant for Industry Classes


The West Central School Board heard a report from Principal Patrick Culp and others who recently went to Indianapolis to accept a $82,355 Region 1 Works Council for a Career and Technical Education innovative-curriculum grant.

The grant will fund a Pulaski County Repair and Maintenance Technology program at West Central High School. Superintendent Don Street says a program for machine maintenance will assist students in giving them the skills they need to be productive in local industry.

“Several other businesses within our county are going to be part of this endeavor in developing the curriculum for that,” said Street.

The Pulaski County Commissioners previously approved a request to come up with $12,000 in matching funds for the grant.
