Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown toured the new Dorchester Career and Technology Center on Monday morning and presented Dorchester County Public Schools a $2.9 million check.
The $2.9 million was included in the fiscal year 2012 capital budget and was part of the nearly $14.9 million state funding for the project since 2008.
“While attending college remains a goal, it is not necessarily for every student coming out of (high school) immediately,” said Brown. “We certainly want to make opportunities available (while) at the same time ensuring that all of our students that graduate high school have the skills to compete in this economy. That’s why the work here at the career and technology center is so important.”
