Thirteen Tri Star seniors from the class of 2020 have been awarded a Tri Star Skills Gap Grant. The Skills Gap Grant (scholarship) was initiated at Tri Star this year using money raised through vending machine sales. A senior enrolled in a Tri Star program, whether they are going into the workforce or going on to college, is eligible to apply for the grant. The scholarship money may be used for work, training, or college expenses such as work boots, tools, tuition, gas, books, etc. Congratulations to all the seniors who received these inaugural grants!
