(Roosevelt, Utah)— April 9, 2018 – STRATA Networks announced today that they have pledged to donate $135,000 to UBTech to help fund a technology-based training program for students in the Uintah Basin.

STRATA’s donation will be awarded over a three-year period with $30,000 being contributed annually to help fund equipment and operational costs, and an additional $15,000 per year to be awarded in scholarships.

As a local cooperative, STRATA has always made an effort to invest in educational opportunities, providing up to $50,000 in additional scholarships each year through their own company scholarship program. CEO/General Manager Bruce Todd said they are looking forward to expanding their commitment to continuing education programs through this partnership and are optimistic about the new opportunities that it will bring to the Basin.

“Technology and broadband are some of the driving forces in the ways we communicate with each other, conduct business, and lead our daily lives,” STRATA General Manager/CEO Bruce Todd said. “As we watch this evolution & our dependency on technology grows, the need for relevant training & education in the Basin has become essential if we want to continue living in a connected world and prepare students for a technology-driven workforce.”

“The program will be offered in August 2018 and will be available to both secondary students and adults. Curriculum will focus on all aspects of information technology including the design, development, support, and management of computer software, hardware, and networks.” Said UBTech President, Aaron Weight.
