ISTC to Purchase Equipment with Barfoot Community Service Grant

Ingram State Technical College president Annette Funderburk announced today that Senator Will Barfoot (R-25) has awarded Ingram State Technical College a $2,400 Community Service grant. Funderburk said the award came from funds allocated to each legislator for public education purposes.

During a tour of the campus, Sen. Barfoot stated he was pleased the funds would be used to benefit the new Industrial Systems Technology program. “The grant represents taxpayer dollars,” he said, “and I believe taxpayers would support programs like this one which prepares students for good jobs in a growing career field.”

Funderburk thanked Sen. Barfoot for his generous award. “Industrial Systems Technology was developed specifically to meet industry demand,” she said. “Program graduates help meet Gov. Ivey’s Success Plus goal to grow Alabama’s skilled-labor pipeline by 500,000 workforce-ready employees by 2025.”
