Welding class at Streator High picked for $10,000 grant

Posted by wlpo on May 7, 2015

It doesn’t look like Streator High School’s welding program will suffer the same fate as the building trades class did at Ottawa High School.

The welding program has won a $10,000 grant through the Midwest Technical Institute in East Peoria. The grant money can be used to buy equipment or classroom materials and to renovate the welding shop.

Streator welding students put together a four-minute video for the grant competition with the winner being selected by the most votes on Facebook.
