VERMILLION — A Vermillion man will get a jump start on his career thanks to the Build Dakota Scholarship program and the willingness of a Vermillion company to invest in the education of its future skilled workforce.

MASABA, a manufacturer of bulk handling equipment for the mining, aggregate, and agriculture industries, is partnering with Build Dakota and Mitchell Technical Institute (MTI) to address its projected need for welders through participation in MTI’s Double Edge program. The Double Edge is a hybrid of the Build Dakota and MTI’s Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP). Under the program, a student’s education is jointly funded by Build Dakota and the sponsoring company. The student must maintain an academic standard to remain eligible, and commit three years of post-grad service to the company.
