Gov. Holcomb traveled to the Columbus Learning Center on Friday to participate in a roundtable discussion and to learn about the region’s successful and well-established workforce partnerships, including the Community Education Coalition and Economic Opportunities through Education (EcO) Network. While there, he heard directly from students who have taken advantage of local education and work-based opportunities to pursue pathways leading to rewarding and fulfilling careers in Southeast Indiana. The governor joined other state and local elected officials as well as education, community and business leaders. The goal of the visit was to learn about successful, locally-developed programs to skill-up Hoosiers and put them to work in high-demand, high-wage careers.
