The Northwood Technical College Foundation recently applied for a grant through the Bernick’s Family Foundation. The purpose of this grant was to acquire tools for the Construction Essentials program, as more tools would allow the College to provide more offerings of this program. The Foundation was granted $15,000.00 which will allow for the purchase one entire set of tools and supplement the current sets with tools that are missing.

The Construction Essentials program focuses on going to different areas in our region to prepare individuals for employment in the construction job sector. The program is currently being taught at Luck High School and Clayton High School before heading to the Gordon Correctional Facility. Past courses have been taught on some of the area reservations as well.
