Congressman Tom Reed announced the approval for a $146,368 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) to the Portville Central School. The grant is designated for the STEAM Envisioneering Center that will help students develop their abilities in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.
“This grant is a win for over 1,000 students and community members who will have the opportunity to develop key skills that are vital in today’s workforce. I was happy to recommend that ARC provides full and fair consideration to the grant request last year. We must work to train individuals for the jobs of today and tomorrow,” Reed stated.
The Envisioneering Center will be developed in partnership with Case Western Reserve University and will give students and community members the opportunity to develop technological competencies in the operation of specialized high-tech equipment.
Congressman Tom Reed’s office provided a letter in support of the grant to be included in Portville Central School’s request to the ARC.
