Milton CAT Supports White Mountains Community College’s Build Community Littleton Expansion

Milton CAT is proud to be making a $200,000 gift to support White Mountains Community College’s (WMCC) Littleton, NH, Academic Center as part of their Build Community Littleton Expansion. The expansion will help WMCC meet current and future workforce needs in the North Country by growing high-demand programs including their Diesel Heavy Equipment Technology program, improving access to quality education, increasing regional recruitment, and deepening community integration. Our donation will support construction, equipment, infrastructure, and program development. Groundbreaking for the expansion is planned for this May.
 
“We are overwhelmed with gratitude from the generous donation from Milton CAT,” said Dr. Chuck Lloyd, WMCC president. “This monumental gift truly highlights the importance of community collaboration and how it can support educating our future workforce. The partnership with Milton CAT continues to evolve and their investment has helped better so many lives in the North Country. Milton CAT, fittingly, is moving mountains for us in terms of our ability to get this project to completion.”
 
Milton CAT has been a long-time supporter of WMCC and its Diesel Heavy Equipment Technology program. Access to high-quality technical and safety training has a significant impact on students’ lives and the community. By supporting WMCC, Milton CAT can give back to a community that has helped us get to where we are today. Throughout the years, Milton CAT has donated machines, diagnostic equipment, engines, and PPE; led workshops; assisted with instructor development; and provided students with internship, co-op, scholarship, and employment opportunities.
 
“Through those students that we have hired, we have seen time and time again, the type of individuals that graduate from WMCC,” Chris Milton explained. “Supporting the Build Community Littleton Expansion is not just a commitment to a vital education infrastructure for the region, it is an investment in determined and talented young people. We are pleased and excited to be a part of it.”
 
The Littleton Academic Center will bring in-demand programs to the North Country and provide students with access to state-of-the-art technology and resources while engaging with local industry professionals. The expansion will feature a new 10,000 sq. ft. advanced technology building to grow WMCC’s current programs including Diesel Heavy Equipment Technology, Industrial Mechanics, and Welding and develop new training opportunities in electric vehicle technology and other emerging fields. “Bringing the technical trades programs to Littleton allows us to work closely with local business and industry for up-skilling and re-skilling of the regional workforce, while also enhancing co-recruitment efforts that benefit the entire community,” Lloyd explained. 
 
Based in Berlin, NH, WMCC is one of seven community colleges in New Hampshire. They offer 48 unique programs ranging from culinary arts to industrial mechanics. Their Diesel Heavy Equipment Technology program is the only program in New England accredited by the Associated Equipment Distributors (AED).
