The Grainger Tools for Tomorrow® scholarship program awards financial assistance for tuition and books to second-year students at select community colleges across the country earning their associates degree or certificate in an industrial trade.

Le, from Benton, is a heating and air conditioning technology graduate and a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.  

Grainger continues to acknowledge the role that quality technical education plays in creating a skilled workforce.  “By funding the Grainger Tools for Tomorrow® scholarship program, Grainger has assumed a leadership role in assisting technical students,” said Dr. Barbara Veazey, president of WKCTC.  “The college is fortunate to have Grainger as a partner and pleased that they have identified WKCTC as a participant in this program.”
