We are so excited to announce that we have received a $200,000 Daniels Fund grant to support the new Advanced Manufacturing Pathway, currently under development by Greeley Evans School District 6! “We are very excited to partner with District 6 on this project and grateful to the Daniels Fund for their generous support. There are over 80 advanced manufacturing businesses in our community and they need skilled workers. The development of this pathway is important for our students and for the industry,” said Success Foundation Executive Director, Julie Hill.
The funds will be used for the renovation and construction of an advanced manufacturing classroom at Greeley Central High School to support learning in two pathways including industrial technology and robotics. The development of an advanced manufacturing pathway will facilitate hands-on training in the classroom, job shadowing, internships, and apprenticeships resulting in meaningful postsecondary employment and college options.
“The development of this program is in direct response to the feedback we have received from work force experts and businesses throughout Weld County,” said Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “This is a win for our students and a win for the industries in Weld County that need skilled workers. We are grateful for The Success Foundation’s support on writing this grant and supporting this program.”
The Success Foundation Serving Greeley Evans Schools exists to enhance educational opportunities for all students in District 6. The Foundation is the dedicated, private fundraising organization for Greeley Evans Schools.
