A new boatbuilding program that launches this summer in Newport will give those young people who want to further their interest an opportunity to explore the marine trades as a potential career path.
The Newport Area Career and Technical Center (NACTC) kicks-off an informational campaign designed to inform the public about the different types of educational opportunities that are available to high school students and highlight the fact that all students in Newport and the surrounding districts have the right to attend NACTC at no additional cost to families.
