RANDOLPH — U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is scheduled to tour a dairy farm at Vermont Technical College in Randolph as part of a visit to the state designed to highlight a training program to support agricultural businesses.
Vermont Tech is getting a $3.4 million federal grant for training programs for state industries that support agriculture, food production, waste disposal and energy production.
Officials say the grant will allow Vermont Tech to improve its degree and college-level certificates and help meet trade employment needs throughout the state.
Solis will be joined for the tour on Tuesday by Gov. Peter Shumlin and members of Vermont’s congressional delegation.MORE IN Vermont NewsMONTPELIER ó More than 2,000 young adults might have wrongly stayed on the stateís health...
