MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Federal funding for a chemistry lab at the Shepherd College Community and Technical College cleared a major hurdle Monday, according to U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito.
Capito, R-W,Va., announced Monday that the Community and Technical College is in line to receive $100,000 to build a chemistry laboratory on the Martinsburg campus for students taking part in the paramedic training program.
Currently, students taking part in certain programs in Martinsburg must commute to Shepherdstown, W.Va., for many laboratory courses. With this funding, students will be able to complete their entire associate's degree program in Martinsburg, Capito said in a news release.
Additionally, the completion of the lab will allow the Shepherd College Community and Technical College to add additional programs, according to the release.
