Senator Tony Luetkemeyer (R-Parkville)
Missouri State Senator Tony Luetkemeyer requested additional funding of $ 1.1 million for the Hillyard Technical Center as part of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s review of the fiscal year 2022 operating budget. The increase in funds for the St. Joseph-based technical school will be included in the committee version of the budget for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Hillyard Technical Center provides technical and craft training to high school students in the St. Joseph area and post-secondary students enrolled in Metropolitan Community College. The additional funds requested by Senator Lütkemeyer would be used to replace obsolete equipment in the school.
