PMPA Member Darlene Miller, member of the President’s Job Council and Creator/ Champion for  RightSkillsNow said, “The skill set that we need, compared to ten years ago, is  enormously different. Math skills, problem solving skills are absolutely  critical.”

The students said they are excited and hopeful the skills they learn will  lead them to a job and a lifetime of possibilities. Many local employers have stepped up to provide internships where the students can get additional time on task and real world experience.

Brandon Eide said, “It’s something to look forward to in the future,  definitely.”
