SCTWA Recognizes Marshall County

Marshall County government and County Mayor Joe B. Liggett have been significant partners with the South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance and the Tennessee Career Center for many years.
During a recent quarterly meeting of the SCTWA, Marshall County and Mayor Liggett were recognized as Partner of the Quarter.
Marshall County has been utilizing the Tennessee Career Center's services by posting all open positions through the center and assisting with the "Ratchet Up Marshall" industry training program. Mayor Liggett is actively involved on the Workforce Development and Conference Center at Northfield as a member of the Oversight Committee and has played a key role in its development.
Marshall County government participates regularly at job fairs held at the center and uses the National Career Readiness Certification program as a pre-screening tool for applicants, as well as using other screening services available to employers. In 2010, due to high unemployment, the SCTWA was given ARRA dollars to implement the Marshall County Jobs Recovery Program. Marshall County government, among other partners, was instrumental in making this program a success.
