Good things continue to happen at the MOVTI: On June 28, 2021, the School Building Authority of West Virginia approved a multi-county / statewide grant award for the Mid-Ohio Valley Technical Institute in the amount of $353,198.00 for facility renovations. The project scope this grant will be used for is to replace the dust collection system in the carpentry / building grounds and operations program area, with a modern and updated new system consisting of the dust collector, spark suppression system, a new make-up air unit and new duct work and drops. All components of the new system will bring the dust collection system up to meeting all current facility codes.
The MOVTI recently purchased a Ford Transit Passenger Van for the purpose of transporting students to off campus career and technical learning opportunities such as internships, job shadowing, health clinical, on-the-job training, industry field-trips, certification exams, college visits, and student competitions. The MOVTI is working to increase the ‘real world’ opportunities and experiences for our students.
