SUPERIOR - The Wisconsin Indian Technical College just received a large grant to help expand programs.
The school got nearly $900,000 from Wisconsin's Blue Print for Prosperity initiative.
WITC's welding program has grown so much in recent years, they have at least 50 people on the waiting list for the fall.
The new grant will allow the school to hire two more teachers to place more students in classes.
Incoming WITC president, John Will said, "Pairing up what employers are demanding from the workforce with people who want to get the skills, will get people basically into a career pathway that will benefit both the employer and the residents."
Surveys show, WITC graduates have a 92% job placement rate.
The average starting salary for grads is more than $40,000.
