‘All Within My Hands’
So, Metallica decided to donate $100,000 to Houston college via their foundation named ‘All Within My Hands’. On average, this initiative will give $1 million in grants to 10 community colleges. The list includes Lone Star College in The Woodlands that will receive $100,000.
“We’re really excited to announce today that we have launched a major workforce education initiative that provides direct support to community colleges to enhance their career and technical education programs,” stated the foundation. “These programs provide skills and services to students who are looking to enter a traditional trade or other applied learning program.”
Metallica’s grant is part of a partnership with the American Association of Community Colleges. According to officials, Metallica Scholars awards were selected “via a competitive application process and are designed to provide support of relevant job skill training for community college students, reinvest in communities that supported Metallica during its recent United States tours, and leverage the influence of Metallica to elevate the importance of career and technical education.”
