02/10/2010

The Kansas Department of Commerce has awarded Seward County Community

the amount of $113,275 in the area of Advanced Manufacturing.

The grant will add an advanced training component to the manufacturing

grant is a collaborative effort with regional industry employers as well as

Garden City Community College and Dodge City Community College. Industry

The college will use the funds to purchase equipment, provide training, and

assist industry with short-term customized training needs related to the
