"W.  Out of this appropriation, $60,300 the second year from the general fund is provided to the Northern Neck Regional Technical Center to expand the workforce readiness education and industry based skills and certification development efforts supporting that region in the state.  These funds support the Center's programs that serve high school students from the counties of Essex, Lancaster, Nuthumberland, Rappahannock, Westmoreland and Colonial Beach."

(This amendment allocates $60,300 the second year from the general fund to provide funding to the Northern Neck Technical Center (NNTC) to hire a full-time Career Counselor. The NNTC provides students opportunities to: 1) gain work experience in businesses and industry; 2) participate in programs that combine academic and technical content, using a hands-on approach that makes learning relevant to the job market; 3) develop academic, computer, technical, leadership, and workplace readiness skills; 4) earn college credit through dual-enrollment courses with two- and four-year colleges and universities that will enable them to earn a degree in a shorter period of time; and 5) earn nationally recognized industry certifications and licensures that will connect them to high-tech, high-paying careers.)
