Speaking about the announcement, Governor Terry McAuliffe said, "Getting Virginians who are switching careers the training and support they need to get good new jobs is a critical part of keeping our economy strong, par- ticularly in Southwest Virginia. I applaud the public and private partners contributing to the success of this important grant ini- tiative that will help in our efforts to create jobs and build a new Virginia econ- omy." The funds will serve approximately 210 work- ers affected by layoffs from Alpha Natural Resources based in Bristol, Virginia. They will provide affected workers in a num- ber of southwestem Virginia counties with career services and training to prepare them for in- demand jobs associated with advanced manufactur- ing and the adventure tourism and outdoor recre- ation industries. "I congratulate the part- ners who have committed to working together to sup- port the job training and career development needs of coal miners and their families," said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones. "This grant is especially impor- tant for the Southwest Virginia region as it trans- forms and diversifies its sources of economic growth. Talent is the num- ber one asset to accomplish this transformation, and this grant is an investment in that talent." "This grant will allow VCCS to provide individu- als in Southwest Virginia with amazing career opportunities," said Secretary of Education Anne Holton. "Higher edu- cation has stepped up to the plate and is providing edu- cation and training, deliv- ering specialized labor market research, and build- ing capacity to provide ser- vices to the people who need it the most." VCCS will lead key project parmers including the Southwest Virginia Workforce Development Area One, New River/Mount Rogers Local Workforce Development Area Two, Mountain Empire Community College, Southwest Virginia Community College and Virginia Tech's Office of Economic Development. "Often, people who have been laid off are look- ing for the most efficient way back into the work- place, earning a salary that can support a family. Increasingly, that means our short-term training programs that lead to industry-recognized certi- fications. Our community colleges are eager to help these people, and grateful for the partners and the resources that will help make that possible," said Glenn DuBois, Chancellor of Virginia's Community Colleges. Other partners in the project include Economic Development Districts-the LENOWlSCO Planning District, the Cumberland Plateau Planning District Commission and the New River Valley Regional Commission, Wise County Industrial Development Authority, Friends of Southwest Virginia, the Southwest Virginia Alliance for Manufacturing and The University of Virginia's College at Wise. Funding is provided by the Partnership for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) National Dislocated Worker Grants, led by the Economic Development Administration (EDA). calendar of upcoming events OPEN DOOR TABERNACLE will have the Wayne Hubbard Family to sing on Sunday, at the 11 am service.
