HARRISBURG, Feb. 9 – State Rep. Justin Fleming, D-Dauphin, announced that the Dauphin County Technical School has been awarded a grant of $85,000 by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for the purchase of new equipment to help train students in skills required for high-demand occupations.

“Our career and technical students must have access to best-in-class educational opportunities so they can develop the critical skills necessary to thrive in the highly competitive 21st century global economy,” Fleming said. “This grant will help provide the Dauphin County Technical School with first-class equipment so their students will have the opportunity to develop hands-on experience with cutting-edge tools and technology. I am very glad that students in the 105th district will be able to receive a world-class education at Dauphin County Technical School thanks to this grant award. I applaud the state’s investment in Dauphin County’s workforce.”
