Chapel Hill ISD CTE Program receives $5,000 grant from Trane


CTE A big congratulations are in order for Chapel Hill ISD’s Career Technology Education program, as well as a large thank you to Ingersoll Rand Trane Facility for their generous contribution to our school.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and grant presentation was held, on July 25, to honor the partnership between Trane and CHISD’s CTE program. Trane Manufacturing presented CHISD’s CTE Executive Director, Brad Langley, with a five thousand dollar check. The funds given to the CHE program will be used to update the school’s welding and manufacturing facility with products used inside of Trane’s newly updated facility. Through the use and learning of their new products, students will be prepared, immediately upon graduation, to become an employee at the Trane facility.  

CTE Chapel Hill has a strong tradition in moving students forward, into their careers, and prepares them with, not only the knowledge, but the skills necessary to obtain high-demand, high wage jobs. The program gives students the opportunity to apply themselves outside of a classroom and in a work-force environment, ultimately preparing them for their future.

CHISD would like to extend a large thank you to Trane’s Vice President of Operations Ted Crabtree and Plant Manager, Robert Rivers, for extending this opportunity to our students.
