LEHI -- Gov. Gary Herbert joined other state government officials Tuesday at Thanksgiving Point to break ground for a new technology college.

The Mountainland Applied Technology College will serve Northern Utah County. The school will have several study programs, including pharmacy technician training, medical office administration and dental assisting. Herbert says jobs like these hold the community and economy together.

"Those nuts-and-bolts workers are really what holds the economy together," Herbert said. "It's kind of like glue."

The college is expected to be finished by December of 2010.
