Mechatronics Program to Improve Cheatham’s Manufacturing Skills

The Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) announced that the Cheatham County School District will share in a $400,000 grant through the Labor Education Alignment Program (LEAP).

The grant will allow the school district to fund the equipment and training needed to incorporate a mechatronics technology program at Cheatham County Central High School.

Cheatham County Joint Economic & Community Development Board collaborated with the Tennessee College of Applied Technology at Dickson (TCAT) to complete the application and will continue to partner with the TCAT, Cheatham County Schools and area employers to create and sustain a successful program.

The grant is one of 12 statewide that was recently announced by Gov. Bill Haslam.  More detailed information may be found at this link.
