Tri-County Education Foundation Announces Grant Awards

The Tri-County Education Foundation is pleased to announce it has awarded its’ first grant awards since its’ inception to two Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School clubs. The Robotics club has been awarded $500.00 and the SkillsUSA club has been awarded $500.00.  

The funds associated with the awards will be used to fund participation in competitions including travel expenses allowing both clubs to compete at a national level.

Foundation Board President Christopher Ward said, “The grants were awarded to help defray the cost of the transportation and incidentals needed for students to compete, which falls outside the normal scope of school budget funding.”

The Foundation is currently seeking sponsorships within the community for financial support and commitment to the Tri-County community. Those organizations who would like to inquire about becoming a Tri-County Education Foundation sponsor, please go to the website at:  tcedfoundation.wordpress.com.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization administered by a 10-member Board of Directors comprised of area business, finance, and education leaders with a vested interest in sustaining quality vocational-technical education programs and growing a capable workforce.

Tri-County RVTHS, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, is a recipient of the High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award and serves the communities of Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleboro, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole, and Wrentham.
