Meet Jasmine from The Lawrence Humane Society

Meet Jasmine from The Lawrence Humane Society

Jasmine is one of our all terrain models. Low to the ground with lots of power and sturdy as they come. She is an American Pit Bull Terrier mix and is goofy, but dependable. From her well shaped front end, to her nubby back end, she is well built. Her rear suspension can be pretty wiggly at times, but it doesn’t affect her overall performance. She is a 2014 model and is a shiny tan and white.

The Dwayne Peaslee Technical Training Center Announces New Tenant



Contact: Hugh Carter, VP External Affairs, The Chamber – 785.764.3362

David Brennan, Executive Director, Heartland Works – 785.234.0500

The Dwayne Peaslee Technical Training Center Announces New Tenant

LAWRENCE – The Dwayne Peaslee Technical Training Center, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Heartland Works, Inc. as the new location for its Lawrence Workforce Center. Plans call for the Center to relocate from its south Iowa Street location to the Peaslee Center in mid to late April.

David Brennan, Executive Director of Heartland Works, said “We are thrilled the Lawrence Workforce Center will be a partner in the technical training campus as a tenant in the Peaslee Center.  The training, recruitment and job search assistance services provided to the employers, underemployed and unemployed in the Lawrence Community will be enhanced by this partnership.  We applaud the community for their support of this campus and are very pleased to be a ground floor partner in this exciting endeavor.”

The Lawrence Workforce Center serves as a single point of entry to a network of employment, training, and educational programs and providers in Douglas, Franklin, Jefferson, Atchison, Brown, Doniphan and Nemaha counties. The Center helps employers find skilled workers and helps career seekers access the tools needed to manage their careers through high-quality information and services.

“We are very excited to have the Lawrence Workforce Center join us,” said Shirley Martin-Smith, Chair of the Peaslee Center board. “The services they provide are a perfect complement to the mission of the Peaslee Center. The community will really benefit from having all of these resources in one location.”

The Peaslee Center is located at 2920 Haskell Avenue in Lawrence. It is a 77,000 square foot industrial building, purchased by the Economic Development Corporation of Lawrence and Douglas County, for the purpose of bringing technical training to the community. Renovations of the building will begin soon and training will start in August. Immediately adjacent to the Peaslee Center, Lawrence Unified School District’s new College and Career Center is also under construction with plans to open for training in August.

Heartland Works is headquartered in Topeka, Kansas and administers the US Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration’s Workforce Investment Act for 17 counties in Northeast Kansas in partnership with KANSASWORKS, a Kansas Department of Commerce workforce initiative. Together they serve businesses, job seekers, and youth through workforce cneters in Lawrence, Topeka, Manhattan, and Junction City, Kansas.

The mission of the Dwayne Peaslee Technical Training Center is to be a catalyst for economic growth providing access to technical training to a diverse community of learners to meet the current and emerging needs of our communities and employers.
