Selected from a pool of over 130 applicants, Tech Foundry has been announced as the recent winner of the 2016 Champions in Action by Citizens Bank. With the award comes a check for $35,000 as well as other support from Citizens Bank that will enhance the work of Tech Foundry. The award also includes significant exposure from New England Cable News.
Over 50 workforce development stakeholders and Tech Foundry employer partners gathered last week at an event at Tech Foundry to share in the great news. Tech Foundry sees this award not just as affirmation for our program success, but also an award to the collaborative efforts of companies across the region. As Jonathan Edwards of Tech Foundry stated, “this is an award that should be shared with the entire Western Massachusetts region.”
Thanks to Citizens Bank for this great award and new partnership, and to NECN for the valuable news coverage of the award ceremony and the PSA they created:
