Technical Education Initiative Kicks-Off

February 27, 2014, 5:10 PM by Sammi Bjelland

Technical Education Initiative Kicks-Off
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A new initiative to bring more people into technical education kicked off in Sioux Falls today.

Southeast Tech and Forward Sioux Falls announced today that they're teaming up to let people know the benefits of a two-year degree.

The initiative will use print, tv and online media to get the message out over the next 3 years.

Local business leaders also support the cause.

"I'm kind of passionat about this because my company is in trouble. If I can't get these mechanics. If I can't get these students and mentor them and train them and bring them into my company, I'll start losing customers. It's that simple," Mike Sheehan, president of Sheehan Mack Sales and Equipment said. 

The group also hopes to get more business owners involved with tech schools, to help keep up the already high placement rate after graduation.
