Gillette College administration is working to complete an application that provides opportunity for additional workforce development programs.

After finding out last week that the new district qualifies for a statewide partnership, Travis Grubb, dean of career and technical education, and Barry Spriggs, vice president of student and academic affairs, have been working to put together applications that could provide money for starting up workforce trainings, expansion of makerspaces and repurposing of health care equipment, President Janell Oberlander said in a college board meeting Wednesday.
