Gov. Daugaard visits Manufacturing Academy in Yankton

In June, Gov. Dennis Daugaard visited a Manufacturing Academy held at the Regional Technical Education Center in Yankton. In February, Yankton received a Governor’s Grant for Career and Technical Education. Grant funding made it possible to expand the academy into a two-week, credit bearing course. This year, students from Wagner and Yankton participated.

Yankton is also working to involve additional schools in next year’s academy and in Friday classes held during the school year at the RTEC.

The center also held a Transportation Academy this summer.
