    Check this out...This ties in with the scholarship -

    Manufacturers Have Hard Time Finding Skilled Job Seekers.
    NBC Nightly News (3/8, story 4, 2:05, Williams) reported, "Even with so many Americans still unemployed, some companies, manufacturers in particular, are having trouble finding workers." NBC (LeBeau) added, "Over the last two years American manufacturers have hired more than 400,000 workers. At the same time the number of manufacturing jobs unfilled has more than doubled to 264,000" due to "a lack of applicants with the skills or education to run or build machines that are more complex." (NBC Nightly News, 3/8, story 4).
    So, students at the CACC considering going into skilled labor positions...apply for the scholarship and see where your career will go!
