Greater Lawrence Technical School (GLTS) is the recipient of $145,000 in funding recently granted under the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s Learn and Earn program to prepare students for higher learning opportunities and careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The program will train 24 GLTS students over the summer, and an additional 60 during the fall and spring, in the installation of solar electric panels for residential and commercial uses. Students will have the opportunity to train on ground-level, full-size practice roofs and install a fully functional solar election system as a final project.
“Greater Lawrence Technical School is a truly invaluable asset to our community and this training program will no doubt place GLTS interns on the path to future success,” said State Representative Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen), a member of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education who represents communities in North Andover, Methuen, Lawrence and Haverhill. “I am proud to join my fellow Lawrence legislators in celebrating the announcement of this important funding.”
