The Empire-Trubune reports that Ranger College, Stephenville ISD, the Stephenville Economic Development Authority and Workforce Solutions of North Central Texas made a combined request for equipment funding from the Texas Workforce Commission’s Dual Credit and Technical Education Grant.
Dixon Bailey of Workforce Development at Ranger, said they received the grant of over $194,000, for equipment in the school’s welding program.
Dual credit means that high school students can take the training and receive credit at their home high schools such as Dublin and Stephenville, as well as receive college credit at Ranger.
Applications for both the welding and machining programs are being accepted now.
