With unemployment at a record low and jobs continuing to flow into the state, Alabama will need an additional 500,000 skilled workers by 2025, and more than half of those jobs will require some level of education beyond high school. Fortunately for Cullman area students and businesses, the two public school systems and Wallace State Community College (WSCC) are working closely to prepare students for those jobs.
Strategic Training Programs
"Many of these middle skill jobs, which provide wages to support families and make up a significant sector of economic growth, require the training that community colleges, like Wallace State, provide. Wallace State plays a critical role in supporting local business and industry and economic development recruitment efforts,” says Wallace State President Dr. Vicki Karolewics.
“Everything we do is workforce development. We are preparing students for careers.”
