Emanuel announces new manufacturing programs for high school
November 13, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Money returned to the City of Chicago by United Airlines is going to be invested into the community.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel toured Austin Polytechnical Academy Tuesday and announced the school will receive $1.25 million to create new advanced manufacturing programs for students.
