The Kosciusko Attala Partnership has been awarded a $1,000 grant from Enbridge, one
of the nation's leading energy delivery companies.
The Kosciusko Attala Partnership will use the grant to help over 30 students at the
Career Technical Center of Attala County take the National Career Readiness Certificate
test at no cost. Holmes Community College â€“ Attala Center provides the testing at
a discounted rate and allows more students to be able to take the test.
"More employers are requiring the ACT WorkKeys NCRC tests and as a work ready community,
we want to ensure that as many students as possible can take it. Our partnership with
the Career Technical Center is very important and their leadership in workforce development
and training for future generations has proven to be very effective for students entering
college or seeking work right out of high school," said Darren Milner, Executive Director
of the Kosciusko Attala Partnership.
"Having a company like Enbridge provide a grant like this really helps many of the
students who might otherwise not be able to afford it," said Tracy Hardy, Counselor,
Career Technical Center.
"Holmes Community College is extremely happy to partner with the Kosciusko Attala
Partnership to offer this to students in our local community. It is a wonderful opportunity
for these students that can have a huge impact on their future and the career path
they choose," said Mandy Burrell, Workforce Coordinator and Director of the Attala
