TVA Donates Funds to WKCTC

A program at West Kentucky Community and Technical College that trains students for careers in chemical, energy and nuclear fields recently received a $5,000 donation from the Tennessee Valley Authority. The funds will be used to purchase parts to build electrical controls and instrumentation for a classroom training system as part of the Industrial Chemical Technology program at the college.

We are extremely thankful for the continued support of our college from the Tennessee Valley Authority, said WKCTC President Barbara Veazey. Its this kind of community support that has helped us to be recognized as a preeminent community college nationwide.

West Kentucky Community and Technical College is a public, two-year, degree-granting institution serving western Kentucky, southern Illinois, southeast Missouri and northwest Tennessee. The Industrial Chemical Technology program includes courses in basic electrical and industrial mechanics.

TVA has a long history of supporting public education, particularly that which promotes development of skills in science and technology, said Sarah Davasher, TVA Valley Relations manager. These skills are vital to the regions economy and we believe this program enhances career opportunities in these fields.

TVA has donated more than $37,000 to WKCTC since 2005.
