Macht Fund of The Associated Contribute $3,000 to High School Career and Technology Center

Macht FundThe Macht Fund of The Associated committed $3,000 to the Institute’s High School Career and Technology Center in support of its horticulture expansion project.  This grant will allow the school to create a new landscaping program to afford students with disabilities the opportunity to design a landscape layout; prepare a vacant atrium located within the high school; and plant, prune, and maintain the grounds.  In doing so, they will gain the skills necessary to become more competitive applicants when seeking post-secondary employment in the horticulture field.  Once complete, this space will also be used as an outdoor classroom, providing a therapeutic setting for all of the high school to enjoy.
