(9.21.2018) Nearly one hundred educators from the Calhoun County School System and the Jacksonville City School System joined East AlabamaWorks, The Calhoun County EDC, and the Calhoun County Chamber to become the largest group of educators, to date, to participate in a Educators Workforce Readiness Program.  Seven buses and one 15-passenger van carried the teachers to visit 14 local industries. The teachers learned about modern manufacturing processes and about the jobs available within our local businesses and industries so that they can return to the classroom and pass those lessons along to their students.  As of today’s group, more than 250 Calhoun County administrators, principals, and teachers have participated in our workforce tours. East AlabamaWorks is also facilitating educator tours throughout our seven-county workforce region, as are other AlabamaWorks regional councils throughout the state.

Thanks for letting us visit!
