Rep. Jonathan Fritz (Susquehanna/Wayne) and Rep. Tina Pickett (Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) revealed this week that the Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center will receive a combined $13,355 in competitive grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE).

The grants will help them purchase needed items for their Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Technology, Automotive Technology and Criminal Justice/Police Science programs.

Career and Technical Education is an alternative educational avenue that continues to pique the interest of young men and women today,” said Pickett. “These grants play a critical role in aiding career and technical schools in meeting their workforce needs.”

A total of $1.2 million in competitive grants from PDE was awarded to 38 career and technical centers and area vocational technical education schools across the state for the purchase of new equipment aligned to training students in high-demand occupations.

I am pleased to hear that Susquehanna County CTC was one of the recipients of this important grant,” said Fritz. “Vocational and Technical School equipment is used daily to instruct and train students in their field. The funding that these institutions receive through the competitive grants is vital for students, to get the most out of their professional training.”
