A new lab at the Hart College and Career Academy that will help train students for one of the most lucrative trades in Georgia received money on Monday.

Kevin McCraney, of Georgia Power, donated $10,500 to fund the creation of an aerodynamics lab at the Hart College and Career Academy.

“It’s essential that we keep funding that and be able to go forward with it,” McCraney said after making the announcement at the Hart County Board of Education’s regular meeting on Monday.

Aerospace products are Georgia’s No. 1 export ($9.1 billion) and the state’s second largest manufacturing industry generating a $57.5 billion economic impact, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
