The Tobacco Commission has funded another project at the Pittsylvania Career and Technical Center near Chatham.
A couple of years ago the Tobacco Commission started funding a Machining program that allows students to get college credit.
If a Pittsylvania County student completes the classes, then he or she only has to go to Danville Community College for 1 year to earn a 2-year certificate.
The new industrial maintenance class will offer college credit also.
If you know of any Pittsylvania County students who may be interested, please get them to talk to their guidance counselors.
There are many good-paying jobs available for graduates of both programs.
