U.S. Labor Secretary Visiting VTC

10/02/12 6:06AM

U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis will be in Randolph Tuesday, touring a dairy farm at Vermont Technical College. She's here to highlight a training program that supports agricultural businesses.

VTC is getting a $3.4 million federal grant for training programs in agriculture, food production, waste disposal and energy production.

Officials say the grant will allow VTC to improve its degree and college-level certificates, as well as help meet trade employment needs throughout the state.

Governor Peter Shumlin and members of Vermont's congressional delegation will also be on-hand for the tour.
