GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Greater Lafayette Career Academy is using a $19,500 grant to benefit its engineering students.
Duke Energy awarded the money to the GLCA Wednesday.
The money is being used for hardware in the engineering department.
The hardware is custom built and will help students with their coursework.
The GLCA director said she's thankful and ready to put the money to good use.
"Oh, well we are really excited," said Miranda Hutcheson. "It's going to offer a lot of opportunities for students in the community so obviously we are excited. All three school corporations in Tippecanoe County are going to benefit from it, so its just another example of great partnership in our community."
Hutcheson said Duke has been a great partner while the career academy is being built.
It will open August 13th for about 200 high school students.
