(Hinesville, GA) The Liberty College and Career Academy was recently awarded a $25,000 Workforce Development Grant funded by the Georgia Power Foundation. The Workforce Development Grant (WFDG) provides school districts,  that offer Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) through traditional high school programs or through College and Career Academies (CCAs), with a grant between $10,000 and $25,000. The purpose of the grant is to invest in building or sustaining capacity at CCAs and CTAE to better serve students and instructors in program alignment of educational and training pathways to meet workforce needs of businesses in local communities. The Georgia Power Foundation funds these grants in partnership with the Georgia Foundation for Public Education. Liberty College and Career Academy will use the money to help students become independent, employed, and contributing members of society by implementing a new Patient Care Technician program. “This program is designed to equip students with the skills necessary to assist patients in hospitals, medical clinics, assisted living environments and physician offices. Once our students become Patient Care Technicians they will have the ability to provide direct patient care and will be able to meet a variety of patient needs,” stated Karisa Young, Chief Executive Officer of Liberty College and Career Academy.
