On Monday, May 22, 2023, East AlabamaWorks honored ten outstanding graduates from our inaugural Modern Manufacturing Program classes. Eight of these students will be entering the workforce as full-time employees of Honda Alabama Auto Plant, one was honored as the recipient of a scholarship from the Alabama Automotive Manufacturers Association, and one has received multiple competitive job offers from local industry.

The Modern Manufacturing Program – offered in high schools around Region 2 – allows students to start building their career pathway in the world of Manufacturing while still in high school. Participants learn the latest technology and manufacturing techniques while also earning stackable credentials from MSSC, NCCER, and more. Upon graduation, students can connect with local industry and start a full-time career making great wages with benefits right out of high school.

East AlabamaWorks is proud of the students from this first year of classes, and happy to see them begin their careers in the local workforce.
