Dear Manufacturers,

I invite you to apply today to be a part of the Make It in America grant program through MS Delta Community College.

The grant program will expand MDCC's successful internship

program and will accelerate the development of critical manufacturing skills across the region.

High-performing students in their final semesters at MDCC are eligible to participate as interns with manufacturing partners through this grant program. The grant will fund the internship.

MDCC's division of Career-Technical Education is facilitating the process for manufacturers to recruit high-performing interns from these career-technical programs: Electrical Technology, Electronic Technology, Automotive Technology, Computer Networking and

Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning.

The number of interns is limited by the grant, and this is open to manufacturers in all seven counties of MDCC's service area. Please review the attached flyer and contact Christi Gregory for an application as soon as you can!

Best regards,

Dru Morgan

Director, Workforce Education

"As a result of the technical training on the newly installed equipment at Mars 
Foods, US in Greenville, the technicians now have the tools to identify any faults 
quickly and take the necessary actions to get them back in service in a timely 
manner. This training has positively impacted machine/process downtime, 
improved production capabilities, quality, and reduced waste. All are critical 
aspects needed for our business. Having a strong relationship with Mississippi 
Delta Community College allows us to improve the skill sets of our associates and 
this is a valuable partnership."

“We are very pleased with our partnership with MDCC and The Capps Technology Center regarding workforce training needs.  Clinical shortages affect everyone in the Delta. When we reach out to the Capps Technology Center to assist us with solutions, they immediately get the wheels rolling. They understand the importance of offering relevant workforce training applicable to a hospital setting.  With the Center’s assistance, our employees benefit from the expertise of varied nursing/clinical personnel, and new employees have the opportunity to gain valuable clinical knowledge and skills.”
