TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Two organizations committed to economic development are teaming up to expand the workforce in the Capital City.

Topeka Mayor Larry Wolgast joined members of Go Topeka and JEDO, to present Dr. Jerry Farley and Washburn Tech with a $50,000 grant.

The money will provide scholarship opportunities for both current and incoming post secondary students from Shawnee County.

JEDO, says establishing the scholarships is a direct reflection of local government reinvesting its tax dollars into improving the lives and job opportunities of its citizens.
