FREE Vocational Training Opportunities for Millbury Students!
Nicholas has been a proponent of vocational education. He voted to support an agreement between Millbury Public Schools and the New England Carpenters Training Center. This agreement will allow Millbury’s high school students an opportunity to receive training from certified instructors in the areas of general carpentry. There will be NO charge to students for vocational training. Nicholas believes that students who would like to seek vocational training for skilled work deserve a chance to learn. NOT all students have the opportunity to go to college and deserve a chance to make a career with vocational training.
