ICC, Itawamba Community College President Jay Allen and I met this morning for over an hour discussing ICC’s educational and economic impact in our region. We discuss academics, sports, and workforce training.
A degree or certification from our community colleges can offer a person the opportunity to secure a high paying job in our region. From advanced manufacturing, to medical technology, to legal services, community college education is a great value.
Our community college system, and particularly ICC, is a vital partner with companies helping train our workforce in soft skills and technical skills in an effort t continue to grow our great companies and our Mississippi economy.
