An automotive technology program is coming to the Regional Rural Technical Center at LaHarpe.

USD 257 board members agreed to start the program next fall in partnership with Flint Hills Technical College, Emporia, citing high demand for such training in this area.

The program will be the same as the FHTC auto program in Garnett, which brings in students from around the region and typically has a waiting list.
