Please help me in developing this program in Marshall Co. to get more people the skills they need, that you need them to have and to get more people back into the workforce and off the sidelines. Along with TN Promise, this program is one method we are developing in Marshall Co. to improve the quality of our workforce.

Other Methods We Are Undertaking in Marshall County to Improve Workforce:
  • Pathways Presentations - Bringing Industries into the schools from 3rd Grade and Up to tell kids about their companies, careers at their companies, the soft skills needed to succeed at their companies and the educational/training levels required to succeed at their companies
  • Pathways Tours - Local industries are hosting student tours where entire classes (Freshmen class, Sophomore Class or Junior Class - 7th or 8th grade) from schools across the county come to the plants to see what is being done there and what is needed in the way of workforce
  • Job Fair for Seniors - Spot Lowe Technology Center will host a Job Fair for Early Graduating Seniors at MCHS and Other Seniors interested in getting a job on Nov. 29
  • Interviews of 6th Graders - Westhills Elementary 6th Graders will be filling out resumes and doing interviews with HR Managers from local industry later this school year to prepare themselves for what it is like to apply for a job
  • Along with the JECDB and new director Emily Darnell, we will be working on developing focus groups and boards made up of industry leaders, educational leaders and community leaders to tackle specifically the various issues negatively affecting the availability and quality of workforce in Marshall Co.
Please consider becoming a TN Reconnect Ambassador and attend this training session. 

Thank you.
