As Terra State Community College continues its efforts to upgrade its classroom and lab equipment, the college announced this week it has secured more state funding through an Ohio grant program.

The college has been awarded a Regionally Aligned Priorities in Delivering Skills (RAPIDS) grant from the Ohio Department of Education.

The grant, according to a Terra State news release, totals $107,413 and is the fourth round of funding for the college through the RAPIDS grant.

Previous funding was used to purchase programmable logic controller training systems and a collaborative robot and to support a multi-school partnership to provide mobile training trailers.

Andrew Shella, dean of Terra State’s technology and skilled trades division, told the News-Messenger Thursday that the state had approved the grant funding, with the money likely being disbursed to Terra State some time this fall.
