The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton Foundation’s “Give Meaning” campaign was awarded a $10,000 grant by the Entergy Charitable Foundation. Grant funds will be used to support the new Workforce Training Center at UACCM, as well as scholarships and academic programs.
The award is part of the Entergy Charitable Foundation’s grant program whose goal is to support initiatives that help create and sustain thriving communities. ECF has a special focus on low-income initiatives, as well as educational and literacy programs.
The estimated 58,000-square-feet Workforce Training Center at UACCM will house many of the college’s existing technical programs including automotive service technology; welding; industrial mechanics and maintenance technology; and heating, air conditioning and refrigeration technology. In addition to technical programs, an open space for workforce training will be included in the facility for use in recruiting new industry to the area, as well as assisting current industry with workforce development needs.
