“The training provided for our facility through the Division of Workforce Training and Economic Development at Northeast Mississippi Community College has been very valuable to our business. Their staff tailors training solutions to meet our specific needs. They are able to provide complete training programs or just facilities, expert resources, or even financial support, depending on our needs at that time. By leveraging Mississippi’s excellent community college system, we have access to a wealth of knowledge and resources that certainly would not be available otherwise. The structure of this program is something we feel is truly unique and very effective in providing the support to help us succeed.”

“NEMCC job training was the pivotal incentive in competing against other states for Tiffin Motorhomes, Skyline Steel, Roll Form Group, and New River Homes, companies that represent almost 600 committed new jobs and over $70 million in capital investment in Mississippi. In addition, virtually all expanded industries depend on NEMCC job training programs to keep workers competitive in the global economy. The community college job training program is well known nationally, and the state is more competitive not only because of the quality of the job training program, but also because of availability over the long term.”
— Gary Matthews – Director Tishomingo County Development Foundation
