WOW Exposes Thousands of Students to Exciting Careers

The fourth-annual Worlds of Work Expo at Shelton State Community College showcased our region’s high-paying, competitive careers to 5,200 West Alabama Students. Over 100 companies participated as exhibitors, with the Construction World taking home the top prize as Best World. The inaugural Educator Workforce Academy class graduated at the WOW VIP Breakfast Oct. 12. The 70+ member class of area superintendents, counselors and principals spent a year learning about workforce development to prepare our region’s students for careers. The 2018-2019 class of over 100 participants began their training at WOW. Thank you to Presenting Sponsor Mercedes-Benz U.S. International and our many other sponsors for making WOW possible.
