Support GCCC

Editor:

As a Greene County Career Center (GCCC) graduate of the class of 1976, I encourage all Greene County voters to support and vote for Issue 2. This initiative will give Greene County Career Center the facility, equipment and technology to further strengthen our workforce. Thousands of alumni like me received life-changing experiences at the Career Center. We want GCCC to continue building our local workforce with trained graduates who understand the value of hard-work and giving back to their communities.

The research and data done for the levy shows a need in the region for all of the career areas already offered at the GCCC. Their plans for expansion will add even more trained workers in key areas like manufacturing, information technology and engineering technology. We must stay relevant and expand our career training options.

On a more personal note, attending the Greene County Career Center my senior year in high school gave me focus, a path to follow and the confidence to go into the workplace. My first full-time job following graduation led to a 30 year successful career in the financial services industry. That career then led to my current career of 18 years as a business coach to small business owners and individuals.

Our Career Center has proven to be a valuable and vital contributor to our economy with hands-on training for generations of students. The passage of Issue 2 will help them continue this tradition. Please join me and Vote Yes for Issue 2.
