Workforce Development Committee


The responsibility of this committee is to coordinate the work of multiple community entities around the need to improve the educational and skill level of our workforce. It includes strategies to:

  • Assist the technical college in implementing a career readiness track for high school students
  • Increase the high school graduation rate
  • Work through the technical college to ensure a sufficient number of county citizens are credentialed as work ready
  • Work with the employment community to educate them on the advantages of making the work ready credential a component of their screening and hiring practices
