SPC Receives Funds From Texas Workforce Commission

South Plains College continues its growth and excellent track record in the field of CTE programs. Just last week the Texas Workforce Commission presented a check for more than $247K to the college to go towards its Automotive Technology Program. According to a press release these funds will be used to purchase simulation materials to give students the experience of working on gasoline and diesel based engines, raising employability and opportunity post graduation. The Automotive Technology Program has trained 81 students since it began in 2021, and has also partnered with Lubbock Cooper to provide dual-credit courses for high schoolers. This is one field identified by Work Force Solutions as in-demand, hence their generous grant to see the program grow.
