Please join me in congratulating Michael Garner for being appointed by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson to the new Career Education and Workforce Development Board. The purpose of this board is to create a statewide program to prepare workers for jobs. Michael has been working the State of Arkansas for over a year now educating them on the importance of creating great programs in High Schools and Community Colleges that are focused on manufacturing. It seems they have heard his message. It is nice to see that The State of Arkansas is astute enough to appoint those who truly understand what is needed in our school systems to create opportunities for young people.
