Clinton school leaders are inviting area employers to share feedback on workforce development at the upcoming Business & Education Summit.
“We are about to start construction on a $16 million expansion to Clinton High School to house Career and Technical Education classes,” said Dr. Tim Martin, superintendent of schools. “As move forward in this process we need feedback from the business community on how we can best prepare students for the workforce.”
The Summit will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, June 21 in the cafeteria at the Clinton Public School District Central Office, 201 Easthaven Drive in Clinton. There is no cost to attend and lunch is provided.
The event will include a presentation by Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann on results of the annual Y’all Business Survey, and a facilitated discussion with educators and employers on skills training at Clinton High School and workforce development needs in the Clinton area.
“If you are having trouble finding qualified employees, we want to know,” Martin said. “Tell us any specific things that need to be addressed. We want to start a conversation so that both the businesses and our students will benefit.”
The Clinton Chamber of Commerce is encouraging its members to attend the summit, and the Mississippi Association for Partners in Education is coordinating event registration.
Other partnering agencies include the Mississippi Development Authority, Hinds Community College, Mississippi College, Mansell Media, the Froghead Grill and Century 21 David Stevens.
