Corsicana High School Principal Sean Kays and Bradley Thomason, Assistant Principal and Director of Career Tech and Advanced Academic Programs, discussed a partnership between the school district, Navarro College, Rural Grant Partners and Audubon Metals Texas, at the October Economic Partnership Group meeting.
“One of the needs in the community is a workforce that can perform industrial maintenance. This was an opportunity to expand our existing career tech programs,” Kays said.
Corsicana High School will receive $53,000 to update an existing shop with machinery to teach how to fix and maintain industrial equipment. There was also $17,000 of the $153,000 is earmarked for scholarships so students could continue with the program following graduation where they’ll receive a high school endorsement.
Navarro College would use the remainder of tax credit funds.
