Senator Watters' Bill for New Career and Technical Education Center Signed By Governor Hassan

Praises Governor Hassan for commitment to strengthening public education


Dover, NH – Today, Senator David Watters’ bill to provide a $13.5 million grant for a new career and technical education center at Dover High School was one of two key education bills signed by Governor Maggie Hassan. The second bill establishes a commission to study how CTEs can foster public-private partnerships. Senator Watters praised Governor Hassan’s leadership and said the bills underscore the innovative approach the state needs to take to strengthen New Hampshire’s education system.


“The Career and Technical Education Center at Dover High is exactly the type of commitment to education New Hampshire needs,” said Senator David Watters. “As 41-year educator, I have seen first-hand how education can build strong, vibrant communities that drive economic growth and job creation throughout the Granite State. The CTE at Dover High will foster key partnerships between the private and public sector that will help young people develop the skills they need to compete in a 21st century economy.”


Senator Watters went on to highlight the strong team of leaders that helped bring the project forward.


“This project’s success is a testament to the teamwork of many talented public servants in their commitment to find innovative ways to strengthen education. We could not have gotten this done without Governor Hassan’s leadership as well as the hard work of Dover Mayor Karen Weston, the City Council, and the School Board,” continued Senator Watters.
