Representative Curt Vanderwall and several other Representatives met with Governor Snyder yesterday to discuss career trades, technical training and the importance of community college. First, he emphasized the importance of Community College.
“[Community College] allows [students] to remain home, go to school for 2 years and those credits will fully transfer to any major university. It allows them to save a lot of money, get a great education a really move through the system a lot quicker than if they went to a major university.” Said Representative Vanderwall. During his meeting with Governor Snyder, Vanderwall also stressed the value of skilled trades. “All up and down our district right now we’re hurting for folks to fill these great paying jobs. This is going to give people the opportunity for specialized training, working through those things at a local level so they can actually hold a job at the same time they are going to school.”
