BROCKWAY, JEFFERSON COUNTY - The Brockway Center for Arts and Technology offers after school programs for high schoolers and programs for adults looking to obtain degrees as a medical assistant or a pharmacy tech.

The Center opened about 10 months ago and just graduated their first class of 22 students.

Of them, many have already gained jobs.

Senator Joe Scarnati was a big player in making the center a reality. He said, "the employers talk to the educators to say these are the skill sets we need; these are the jobs that we can fill immediately and these kids and young adults are going to work".

It is paid for through the state and by private funds.

The center is accepting students for their next term.
