As a culminating activity for Career Tech Education Month, the Coosa County Career and Technical Center (CCCTC) held a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday to celebrate its grand re-opening after being closed since 2018.
Jobs for Alabama Graduates (JAG) student representatives began giving tours of the recently reopened campus at noon, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. More than 65 people were in attendance, including many local and state dignitaries such as Susannah Cleveland from U.S. Sen. Katie Britt’s office; Dr. Jimmy Hull, assistant superintendent of Career Technical Education and Workforce Development; Jeff Lynn, Central Alabama Community College president; Coosa County School Board members Sharon Coffman, Jennifer Kimbrell and Sharon Massie; Coosa County commissioners Lamar Daugherty and John Forbus; Judge of Probate Richard Dean; Circuit Court Judge David Law; Coosa County Sheriff Michael Howell; EMA Director Sheldon Hutcherson; and many others.
Superintendent of Education David Stover opened the ceremony by thanking all those who made the reopening of the CCCTC a reality, as well as recognizing the overwhelming support from the community.
CCCTC Director Hester Hamby also spoke on all the hard work and financial support that went into reopening the center, as well as the support from community businesses such as Madix and Malibu Electronics.
With business apprenticeship opportunities and expansion of certification opportunities at the CCCTC, the future looks bright for Coosa County students entering the trades workforce.
