After Thursday night’s forum on economic development on the Idaho State University Campus, Lieutenant Governor Brad Little now turned his focus to education.
For over an hour Friday, the Lieutenant Governor met with educators and students about what is working for the College of Technology. Little also discussed some of the hurdles facing the school going into the future. Students in attendance ranged from the paralegal program, to the culinary arts, and automotive technology, and Lieutenant Governor Little says the programs like those at the College of Technology play a vital part in the success of the Gem State’s economy.
“The ability to adapt to the needs of the businesses and the students is so critical,” said Lt. Governor Little. “If a new piece of equipment, if a new technology, if a brand new company comes into Idaho, you need programs like this that say, ‘yes, we can take our citizens and our students and adapt them to the needs that you have.’”
Earlier this week, Lieutenant Governor Little participated in the ceremony announcing the expansion of the Curtiss Wright Flow Control Scientech Company in Idaho Falls.
