“The business community and the education community are co-dependent on each other. We have an obligation to work together to create a strong and vital place to live and work. JAMA and the Academy for Manufacturing Careers are great partners with the ISD.”
-Kevin Oxley, Superintendent at Jackson County Intermediate School District
“The Academy was exactly what I needed to start my college education. It was by far less intimidating than the traditional colleges and much more focused on the student’s specialized needs.”
-Joe Lienhart, former JACC Precision Machining instructor
“I think this program was awesome as it has given me additional opportunities with my employer! There were a lot of good teachers and a ton of opportunities to hone people’s skills. The AMC staff was very helpful and kind throughout the apprenticeship program.”
-Chad Webb, Orchid Chelsea
“The apprenticeship program has provided me with the tools I need to build an exceptional career. And the lessons I’ve learned along the way will stick with me for the rest of my life.
I am so proud of the person I’ve become, and I’ll always be grateful for everything JAMA and my community have helped me accomplish!”
