Washington State Community College Adding New Welding Program in Response to Shale Need

From The Marietta Times:
Washington State Community College will begin two new programs next year, and may also see an increase in state funding.
During the college board of trustees meeting Monday in the main building on campus, the board unanimously approved the purchase of equipment for a welding program, heard the description of a more integrated transfer program with Ohio University and received an update on the new state funding model for community colleges.
The college will spend $93,306 along with a $50,000 grant from the Bernard McDonough Foundation and $89,300 from the Governor's Office of Appalachia to build and equip an eight-station welding laboratory where the ag lab is now located.
