Rising Stars in Manufacturing: Honoring KCTCS StudentsKAM
October is Manufacturing Month and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) is proud to train thousands of Kentuckians for manufacturing jobs.
In fact, KCTCS is the primary provider of manufacturing training in Kentucky. KCTCS has more than 400 advanced manufacturing partners statewide. The 16 colleges align their programs with local business needs, which prepares KCTCS students to walk out of college and into a good paying career.
The system also has more than 200 business partners who offer work and learn experiences through the Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (KY FAME.)
KCTCS also maintains a partnership with the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers (KAM), which has served as the leading advocate for manufacturers for the last 100 years. According to KAM, more than 250,000 people are employed by Kentucky manufacturers and there are 4,500 manufacturing facilities in the state.
Throughout October, KAM will honor a student or graduate from each of the 16 KCTCS colleges. Read about each featured student in KAM’s online e-magazine, The Goods.
