Union Pacific donates $100,000 to Doña Ana Community College.

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 12:40pm

In January 2013, Union Pacific donated $100,000 to Doña Ana Community College (DACC) to support a new rail facility that will provide the area with job opportunities.

The college plans to use the funds for scholarships and workforce development to ensure its students will effectively serve the jobs that facility will bring to the state. For example, a 2,200-acre intermodal and locomotive fueling hub west of the Santa Teresa Airport is expected to create about 3,000 jobs from 2011 to 2015 and more than 600 jobs when it is operating at capacity in 2025. With Union Pacific’s donation,DACC students will be able to graduate with the qualifications to fill open positions.
