Besides reviewing the outcome of a $218,671 Workforce Skills Capital Grant at Haverhill High School, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito last week handed out tools to students to help their efforts.

Polito presented Victoria Martinez with a stethoscope and Olivia Bene’ with a Lenovo backpack. Martinez represented Healthcare Occupation students, while Bene’ represented classmates in the National Academy Foundation (NAF) Academy of Information Technology. All students in their respective programs will receive the gear, also paid for by the grant.

Polito and three Baker cabinet secretaries visited last week to recognize Haverhill High for implementing a February grant aimed at closing a gap between what skills employers need and what schools are teaching.

A ceremony dedicated a healthcare lab and dedicated computer lab, as well as an upper level robotics class and web development program.
