Jessica Vickerson, Store Manager for Lowes of Edwardsville, awarded West Side Career and Technology Center a Toolbox For Education Grant worth $5000. The grant will be used to construct an outdoor, twelve-station Lowes Law Enforcement Agility Training Course. The course will be used by WSCTC Law Enforcement students and any County Municipal Police Department that wants to train, screen and retain a physically fit police force. Once the course opens, township police departments like, Dallas, Forty Fort, Kingston, Lehman, Swoyersville, Wilkes-Barre and Wright, who have already pledged support for the project, will be able to utilize the course to recruit and retain officers. WSCTC students will also use the course as an integral part of the Law Enforcement fitness program. Read More... (Click Image for Full View)
