The Real Deal

Message from the President

Midlands Technical College recently hosted a signing day for the inaugural class of students participating in the Midlands Youth Apprenticeship (MYA) Program. The partnership program between MTC, the Columbia Chamber, and Apprenticeship Carolina will create a talent pipeline for businesses while providing a viable work place path for students after high school. It lays the groundwork for generations to come, and the students’ success in the classroom and in their careers will be an example of what happens when businesses like Nephron, PRISMA Health, and LTC Health Solutions invest in education. I commend these companies for moving early in the educational process to identify and develop the talent to fill their most critical positions.
