The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to James Sprunt Community College for the construction of a new 12,000 sq.ft. building to house their new Diesel Mechanic Program which targets a local and regional critical skills shortage by offering local workers at agribusinesses, transportation companies and industries nationally recognized credentials to achieve higher wages and employment. This new Diesel Mechanic Program will offer existing mechanics continuing education certificates in Electrical, Hydraulics, Preventative Maintenance, Heating and Air Conditioning, and Brakes & Alignment. In addition, JSCC is working to position itself to offer a Certificate, Diploma and Associates Degree in diesel mechanics that will give all young adults and displaced workers the opportunity to become Certified Diesel Mechanics. Golden LEAF funds will be used for facility construction.
