Students in Botetourt County will have access to new tech tools and training to help them prepare for future careers thanks to a $30,000 contribution from AT&T.
The contribution to the Botetourt County Public Schools Education Foundation will support the purchase of a laser cutter and 3-D printer that will allow high school students to develop the computer aided drafting skills commonly used in industry.
Vince Apruzzese, AT&T’s regional vice president for External Affairs, joined Virginia State Delegate Terry Austin; Bob Patterson with the Foundation; Botetourt County School Board and administration; Dr. Bobby Sandel, president, Virginia Western Community College; and students to make the announcement during a special event at Botetourt Technical Education Center in Fincastle.
“Here in Botetourt County, we work hard to ensure that our young people have the tools and skills they need to succeed. Thanks to AT&T’s generous contribution to the Foundation, students will have the opportunity to utilize the latest technology to cut, build and create. Today exemplifies the positive effects that a public partnership with private industry can have on our children and community,” said Delegate Austin.
