Dr. Jill Biden commented that community colleges are changing the way we think about workforce development. President Obama said, “We want to make it easier to join students looking for jobs with businesses looking to hire. We want to put community colleges and employers together to create programs that match curricula in the classroom with the needs of the boardroom.” This charge is what we in continuing education at Pitt Community College do every day. We are the innovators that find morsels of job demands for workers, turn the need into training opportunities and deliver trained workers ready to meet the needs of the board rooms in as short as one semester. I challenge the employers to find the job demands and use our innovative abilities to increase workers' skills or train North Carolinians for those jobs. We are their new best hope. It is truly an exciting time for Continuing Education; we have a road map of determination blazed by those members from years past, one that set the bar for quality delivery the highest in the nation. We continue to strive to be the premiere, comprehensive, training service provider for Pitt County Residents. We welcome your suggestions of new programs that you would like to see offered at your community college. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me at 252-493-7319. David J.
