GSCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Center and its impact on career training

Since Gadsden State Community College announced on July 28 that its Advanced Manufacturing Center construction project is officially underway, there has been unity among officials on the impact it will have on the community — substantial.

“This facility will have the ability to increase training capacity by modernizing our facilities and creating a center for all paths of education that walk through our doors,” Dr. Alan Smith, GSCC’s dean of workforce development, said at the announcement. “This will be a game-changer in the workforce and economic development for years to come.”

One of the center’s biggest impacts will be on career technology education — not only for Gadsden State, but for Etowah County Schools through their partnership that will begin once construction is completed.

“We will be busing students to the new center as part of the partnership agreement we made when Dr. Smith started applying for grants to make this happen,” said Superintendent Dr. Alan Cosby, ECS superintendent, explained. “We can provide this training within our facilities to a certain degree, but this partnership with Gadsden State will amplify what we are trying to do already.”
