Two area natives have returned to their hometowns for a new opportunity with North Central Missouri College in Trenton. NCMC is one of nine community colleges in Missouri to receive funding to implement MoManufacturingWINS, a tuition-free training program offering skills for today’s manufacturing and production workplaces.
Stan Scott, a graduate of Trenton High School, returns to Trenton after retiring from 3M following a 34-year career spent in Weatherford, Oklahoma and Columbia, Missouri. Hired earlier this year as the lead Industrial Technology instructor for MoManufacturingWINS, Stan earned his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Missouri S & T (formerly University of Missouri at Rolla) and his Masters degree in Engineering Management, also from the University of Missouri at Rolla.
Sue Quinn returns to Linn County as the MoManufacuringWINS Recruiter/Retention Specialist covering 18 counties in northwest and north central Missouri. She graduated with her MBA in 2009 from William Woods University; Bachelor of Science in Education from Missouri State University; and a diploma from Brookfield High School. She brings eight years of experience working with WIA programs and has recently been serving in the Ozark Region of Branson and Springfield as a Workforce Development Specialist. She is a member of the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals and Missouri Association of Workforce Development.
As part of the statewide MoManufacturing consortium, NCMC is offering short-term, one-semester, accelerated technical training which provides skills and education that leads to industry-based credentials and college certificates. NCMC will be offering new technical courses that combine lecture, hands-on learning, and online instruction. Courses are tuition-free for eligible participants. However, costs of fees, books, and tests still apply. For those interested in continuing their education after completion of this training, MoManufacturingWINS programs can easily transfer into related one-year certificates and two-year degrees at NCMC.
One-semester programs in Manufacturing Skills (16 credit hours) and Industrial Maintenance Skills (18 credit hours) begin August 19. Eligibility determinations for potential students are underway and enrollment for these new programs begins July 1. Those interested in learning more about the program and eligibility requirements should contact Sue Quinn at 660-359-3948 ext. 1359 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
