Five North Central Missouri College students enrolled in the MoManufacturingWINs program were recently awarded scholarships by the North Central Missouri College Foundation. The students, (shown left to right: Terry Sayer of Princeton, Scott Sims of Laredo, Matt Gaunt of Trenton, Karen Zorn of Kingston, and Jack Parker of Winston, along with NCMC Foundation Director Teresa J. Cross), each received a scholarship for the spring 2014 semester. Courses in the MoManufacturingWINs program are tuition-free for those who qualify, but students are responsible for books, student fees, lab fees, and other student related costs. Scholarships can be applied to those costs.
These students received Jeanette Hoffman Robison and Lloyd and Margaret Ketcham named scholarships, awarded through the NCMC Foundation which focuses on supporting NCMC students through dedicated scholarship funds and programs.
MoManufacturingWINs is a statewide training network of nine public two-year colleges collaborating to implement a rigorous and innovative training model. MoManufacturingWINs classes at NCMC offer short-term, accelerated technical skill training. Sixteen week programs in Industrial Maintenance Skills, Manufacturing Skills, and Welding Skills will lead to industry based credentials, various certifications, and college certificates. The program courses combine lecture, hands-on learning, and online instruction.
The MoManufacturingWINs grant targets eligible adults over the age of 18 who are unemployed, underemployed, low-skilled, or eligible for Trade Act Assistance. Veterans and their spouses, who are otherwise eligible, get priority of participation.
