Lone Star College (LSC) and Wolverine Footwear and Apparel have partnered to help students get the workforce training they need by donating $50,000 as part of the Wolverine x LSC Metallica Scholars Grant. Wolverine is also providing work boots and T-shirts to help these LSC students get off on the right foot.
LSC honored Houston’s highly trained workforce students by hosting a virtual celebration Sept. 9. The event featured representatives from LSC, Wolverine and All Within My Hands Foundation.
“Wolverine is committed to helping build the next generation of the American workforce and for the past six years have focused on closing the skills gap through our Project Bootstrap initiative,” said Tom Kennedy, Wolverine Global Brand president. “We strongly believe in supporting skills training and hands-on education.”
In addition to donating work boots, Wolverine awarded $50,000 to the Metallica Scholars Grant, matching the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation donation.
LSC Foundation also contributed $50,000 to make a total of $150,000 available to LSC students.
Programs covered by the grant include advanced manufacturing/mechatronics, certified nurse assistant, dental assistant and truck driving. The Metallica Scholars Grant is not a loan and does not have to be paid back. For more information, visit LoneStar.edu/Metallica.
