Governor McAuliffe Announces Grants That Includes the Precision Machining Technology Program At The ACE Center at Hermitage
On Thursday, March 23rd, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced $600,000 in competitive grants for high schools and technical centers to upgrade equipment for their career and technical education (CTE) programs. The Precision Machining Technology class located at the ACE Center at Hermitage High School was one of the 16 schools selected for a grant and will receive $37,500 to purchase new equipment. Skills gained in operating the older, traditional manual fabrication machines provide the building blocks for the acquisition of knowledge and skills needed to operate newer machines. Because of the application of computer technology in the machining trade, new, more specialized Computer Numerical Control (CNC) based skills are needed at the entry levels. The grant will allow the ACE Center to purchase an industrial grade CNC lathe that will allow students to master skills needed for the 21st manufacturing workforce. Congratulations to Mr. Tim Alvut and the ACE Center at Hermitage for this outstanding accomplishment.

We are excited to announce that Henrico County-St. Mary’s Hospital School of Practical Nursing recently completed a full site review of the Practical Nursing program for continued accreditation. The site reviewers found the program to be in full compliance with all standards set forth by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). ACEN is responsible for “specialized accreditation of nursing education programs” and supports recognition of “educational institutions or programs that have been found to meet or exceed standards and criteria for educational quality.”
The Practical Nursing program is an example of excellence in Henrico County Public Schools and represents the dedication and commitment of exemplary teachers and staff! I am very proud of each teacher and support staff who continue to strive for student success and uphold the mission and vision of HCPS to be a “leader in educational excellence” and provide students with the “right to achieve and the support to succeed.”
