Years of efforts by Navasota City, School and Chamber of Commerce officials to create a local education program for graduates who are not college-bound is finally close to realization. City Manager Brad Stafford told City Council that Blinn College is finally onboard to do this.
Thanks to Chamber Director Johnny McNally, Stafford said there’s finally a Memo of Understanding in place with Blinn and plans are for classes to begin at the Navasota Center sometime around the beginning of the year.
Stafford said that bringing work-related education classes to the Navasota Center has been a matter of his and Mayor Bert Miller’s highest concern for some time now.
Miller described what Blinn has in mind here as an Industrial Skills Certification Boot Camp. A great part of the success of this endeavor, Stafford added, was the city making the Navasota Center available to Blinn at no cost.
But even after agreement from both sides on the memorandum of understanding has been reached, there’s still work to be done before classes actually can begin at the Navasota Center. And we’ll keep you up-to-date as that work progresses, right here on Navasota News.
