November 8, 2021

COLUMBUS—State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) announced the approval of more than $228,000 in state funds that will be used to purchase medical training equipment from Radon Medical Imaging Corp., for the RAPIDS project at Rio Grande Community College.

The Regionally Aligned Priorities in Delivering Skills (RAPIDS) program funds initiatives with regional collaboration between businesses and higher education. The goals of the program are to retain and expand existing businesses, attract new enterprises, and further entrepreneurship.

"Rio Grande is a tremendous provider of high quality education and workforce development opportunities for local students," said Peterson. "I'm confident this new investment will benefit both the students, and the employers who will eventually hire them."
