June 20, 1991 — After almost 20 years of waiting, Page County residents will finally have their own vocational training center.
School board chairman Dick Fox announced plans Monday to purchase the vacant Autometrics plant, just off U.S. 340 north of Stanley, as a home for the center.
“Every county I know of from Winchester south has a vo-tech center. Page County was the exception,” Fox said.
The county will spend $635,000 for the building and all its equipment, three acres of adjacent land and another 3.5 acres needed to meet state guidelines.
