Springfield, IL…Earlier this week, State Representative Wayne Rosenthal (R-Morrisonville) joined the governor in Litchfield to celebrate the grand opening of South-Central Illinois Training and Innovation Center. This project has been in the works for a year, and now it’s officially open for student enrollment. Litchfield and the surrounding school districts will have access to this top-tier facility.
“Today is exciting for Litchfield students and others who want to pursue a career in trades,” said Rep. Rosenthal. “This new training center is staffed with superb instructors who will teach valuable education to students that will help them obtain great paying jobs. Creating a bright future for our next generation starts with opportunities.”
The South-Central Illinois Training and Innovation Center is where students can thrive in areas such as building trades, automotive, welding and more. Additionally, this facility has partnered with Lincoln Land Community College and Lewis & Clark Community College. Students can expect to earn credit courses while attending high school and can utilize their credits to transfer to a community college. This opportunity furnishes a bright future for students who want to develop the skills needed to prosper in the workforce.
