History, Projects and Camas-Clearwater Technical Education Center

Idaho Lewis County Partners began in mid-2010 as a part of the Rural Idaho Outreach Partners that was started by Premier Technologies President and CEO Doug Sayer.  The RIOP concept was brought to our local area by Idaho County Commissioner James Rockwell.  In February of 2012 the current group of local partners began meeting regularly with hopes of increasing local education options and local businesses securing a potential of $2 million in contracts from Premier Technologies.  In the beginning the group had input and support from Premier.  After layoffs and decreases to the Idaho National Laboratory budget in mid-2012, it became apparent that the contracts from Premier were not likely to come our way.  The group changed its name to reflect a more local focus – Idaho Lewis County Partners.
