Massachusetts Skills Capital Grant awarded to Tri-County

Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School is pleased to announce it has been awarded $119,326 from the Massachusetts Skills Capital Grant to expand the Advanced Manufacturing component of the Engineering program.

After finishing one phase of the engineering technology plant expansion, Tri-County is now remodeling a third shop area to further broaden its Advanced Manufacturing program. This expansion will also enhance adult manufacturing courses offered through a partnership with Wentworth Institute of Technology.

The Skills Capital Grant Program awards grants to support vocational/technical training, upgrades and expansion of career technical education, and training of high-quality career pathway programs that are aligned with regional economic and workforce development priorities for in-demand industries.

Tri-County was among 35 educational institutions in Massachusetts that were recently awarded workforce skills capital grants. The competitive grants are awarded to educational institutions that demonstrate partnerships with industry, as well as align curriculum and credentials with businesses’ demand, in order to maximize hiring opportunities in each region of the state.

“Manufacturing is the fourth largest economic sector in this region today,” said Superintendent Stephen Dockray. “We are extremely thankful and proud to have been awarded this grant. It will allow us to train our students using the latest equipment and technology so they have the best possible training and knowledge to be successful in the job market.”

Tri-County RVTHS, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, is a recipient of the High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award and serves the communities of Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleborough, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole, and Wrentham.
