Mississippi’s workforce needs a boost, and the Mississippi Development Authority has recognized the role education plays in boosting that workforce.

“Dual enrollment is a growing opportunity where our k-12 education is working with our community colleges, under the leadership of Dr. Andrea Mayfield,” said MDA Executive Director, Glenn McCollough.

Dual enrollment allows students to be enrolled in high school and college programs at the same time. While some choose that opportunity to knock out the prerequisites like English Composition or World Civilization, others focus on building their career as they complete high school with career tech programs such as diesel mechanics or HVAC.

McCollough boasted of another resource students can use to prepare for entering the workforce.,” said McCollough. “Any soon-to-be graduate can go to that website and see jobs that are available right here in Mississippi.”
