South Hills Community News Release

STATE COLLEGE — The Chamber of Business & Industry of Centre County (CBICC) held its annual State of Education Luncheon on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at the Nittany Lion Inn in State College.

The event brought together the leaders of five Centre County public school districts and leaders of two-year career/technical training institutions, including Jeff Stachowski, Community Outreach Director for South Hills School of Business & Technology, for an insightful presentation and panel discussion about the priorities of and challenges faced by local educational institutions in helping to prepare the 21st century workforce.

Business and educational leaders also unveiled a new CBICC/community partner initiative – CentreREADY – designed to address the workforce needs of local employers. The initiative is a product of the CBICC’s Business and Industry Partnership Committee, which meets with local businesses to assess their opportunities for and challenges to growth and success.

“The independent work of local educators and the collective effort behind CentreREADY, will be instrumental in preparing a workforce that possesses the technical and core skills desired by local businesses,” said Vern Squier, CCE, PaCCE, President and CEO of the CBICC.
