SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — BridgeValley Community and Technical College has received a $1 million commitment from Toyota West Virginia to further enhance the college's technology and training equipment.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said Tuesday the commitment at BridgeValley's South Charleston campus will take place over five years.
The college's new Advanced Technology Center prepares technicians for jobs in a variety of economic sectors, including the automotive industry.
Toyota and BridgeValley are partners in a two-year advanced manufacturing technician degree program.
BridgeValley was founded on March 20 after the consolidation of Bridgemont and Kanawha Valley Community and Technical Colleges. It also has a campus in Montgomery.
