RICHMOND — Wharton County Junior College’s Emergency Medical Services program has expanded its services at the Richmond campus thanks to a state grant. The public is invited to get an up-close look at these improvements at an open house from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, at the Richmond campus. Demonstrations will be provided beginning at 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. Refreshments and giveaways will be provided to attendees.

The college secured $500,000 for the upgrades through the Texas Reskilling and Upskilling for Education (TRUE) Institutional Capacity Grants, a state-sponsored program. The college covered 25 percent – some $125,000 – of the grant’s cost sharing/match requirements.
