Workforce Solutions South Plains receives grant to benefit 25 schools

LUBBOCK, Texas -

$792,742.65 was awarded to 25 schools on the South Plains. The grant will help area school districts purchase high demand career training equipment for career and technical education programs. 

Workforce Solutions of the South Plains have been working with schools in our area over the last few years. Chief Executive Officer Martin Aguirre says this money is an investment towards students success. 

"Basically we chose to use them for equipment, because when we buy equipment we multiply the effect, multiply the impact. If you create a program you might help 20 kids today, but if you buy a piece of equipment that's going to last five years then you're going to impact five different classes and it just multiplies out," he said. 

Workforce Solutions helps to meet the needs of the region's employers. Aguirre says by providing for the schools it will create a highly skilled workforce.
