A community history lesson, robotic dance and a big check were part of the official opening of a new facility that will equip Farmersville students well into the future.
The Farmersville ISD Engineering Academy welcomed officials and guests to a dedication ceremony and tour of the renovated Feagins Supermarket.
The building which houses the district’s expanded engineering pathway is part of the Career and Technical Education program.
Students will learn skills in deductive manufacturing, additive manufacturing, programming, circuitry, electronics, automation and a number of high-demand skills.
The ceremony included the presentation of a $332,236 Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant from Texas Workforce Commission.
The grant will help FISD, in partnership with Collin College, purchase equipment to be installed in the academy.
