The Jobs Tour took me to the Quiet Corner yesterday to visit Quinebaug Valley Community College. I had the opportunity to meet with Carlee Drummer (QVCC's President), Monique Wolanin (Director of Institutional Advancement), and Steve Lapointe (Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center).
The Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center allows students to get trained for good-paying advanced manufacturing jobs quickly. The potential economic benefit to the local community (and the state as a whole) of schools like QVCC and similar job training programs is incredible. We need to make sure we build a strong school-to-work pipeline so that our next generation workforce has the training they need to succeed.
