Tech Foundry Named Citizens Bank Champion in Action
SPRINGFIELD — Selected from a pool of more than 130 applicants, Tech Foundry was announced as the recent winner of the 2016 Champions in Action award by Citizens Bank. With the award comes a check for $35,000, as well as other support from Citizens Bank that will enhance the work of Tech Foundry. The award also includes significant exposure from New England Cable News.
More than 50 workforce-development stakeholders and Tech Foundry employer partners gathered last week at an event at Tech Foundry to share the news. The organization sees this award as not just affirmation for its program success, but also an award to the collaborative efforts of companies across the region. As Jonathan Edwards of Tech Foundry stated, “this is an award that should be shared with the entire Western Massachusetts region.”
