(Community Matters 42) KCC Ready to Help Train for BlueOval Jobs

First Aired July 29, 2023

With the expected Ford BlueOval Battery Park Michigan plant in Marshall, some may be wondering: When can I apply for one of the 2500 jobs expected? What type of jobs will they be? What skills would I need?

At press time, Ford had not offered insights yet into many of those details. But as we learn in this Community Matters episode, Kellogg Community College has already been in touch with Ford and expects to have a role in helping to train the workforce. Guest: Scott Cubberly, KCC Business & Industry Liaison.
