(12/12/13) — Madisonville Community College recently received notification from a Community College Futures Assembly representative that the college has been selected as one of the ten National Finalists for the Bellwether Award in the area of Workforce Development. The selection was based on MCC's Advanced Integrated Technology/Workforce Solutions initiative designed to create a better prepared workforce addressing the needs of high school graduates and incumbent workers. As a finalist, college representatives will present at the 2014 Community College Futures Assembly in Orlando, FL on January 25-28. Each of the ten finalists will be recognized with one winner announced.

'We are thrilled to be recognized for the tremendous work that has gone into creating this avenue for degree attainment and incumbent worker training.
