Local News by Brandon Carpenter from The Ranger (Amarillo College’s student newspaper):

The renewable energy department has recieved a three-year grant of more than $800,00 from the National Science Foundation to develop a solar energy program.

Part of the money from the grant has been used to hire Arthur Schneider as a director of renewable energy technology and instrumentation technology.

“We are going into some unknowns, and we want to see what other programs are doing,” said Jack Stanley, chairman of the Sciences and Engineering Division.

“The grant will allow us to travel to Austin, Houston, places in New Mexico and Colorado to see the many different programs out there.”
