ON TUESDAY, FEB. 02, 2019, STAR SIGNED AN AGREEMENT WITH LAREDO COLLEGE. STAR’s project is a workforce development program for students getting certification degrees in the following programs:


  • Diesel Mechanic Technology
  • Automotive Mechanic Technology
  • Welding Technology
  • Electrician


STAR is providing a monthly stipend from $250 up to $500 directly to each student. At this time, we have 10 students chosen based on financial need. These students already have financial aid to pay for school and books but need a little extra so they can successfully complete their degree without having to worry about working full time while attending school or other financial obligations they may have.
