On Monday, THINC College & Career Academy hosted Representative Drew Ferguson during the Youth Workforce Pipeline: Make it Happen event. This is the first time the event has been held in Troup County. The main focus of the Youth Workforce Pipeline event was to help businesses and individuals discover how manufacturing companies develop talent. A recent Troup County workforce study predicts 6,000 additional jobs will come to the area over the next five years.
During the event, Kia Motors Manufacturing Group (KMMG) presented THINC with a $100,000 pledge. It is part of the $400,000 pledge earmarked for the Science Lab that was on the campus of THINC in 2016.
