What the chamber of commerce director says is the best push for a local workforce development program Grimes County has had in a decade began earlier this month with an informational luncheon at the Navasota Center.
Johnny McNally reports a total of four presenters laid their visions out for the two dozen in attendance, as they all dined on goodies provided by Tee-Dubs and the Classic Rock Coffee Company.
And while they were not all from businesses, he says, they are all stakeholders in such a program.
McNally tells Navasota News he forsees such a program will eventually find folks who are looking for a position, find folks who are looking to hire for a position, marry the two and have that training take place here in Grimes County. So it’s a win for the prospective employee and a win for the prospective employer, and for us in general because it all adds to the tax base and keeps things rolling here in Grimes County.
McNally adds that since that meeting, an advisory panel has been meeting weekly, and will continue to do so until the job is done.
And we’ll keep you-up-to date on how they’re doing, right here on Navasota News.
