Voorhees to Receive $100,000 from Department of Energy

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced Voorhees College in Denmark has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to organize a retraining skills partnership program for displaced workers at Savannah River Site (SRS). Voorhees will partner with SRS and Denmark Technical College in the effort. “Programs like these help workers get back on their feet and find new employment opportunities,” said Graham. “I’m glad Voorhees is partnering with the Department of Energy and SRS in helping these workers.” Voorhees College is a private, four-year educational institution with more than 700 students.
