CCTC president to serve as a moderator at conference

Posted

Central Carolina Technical College President Michael Mikota has been selected as a panel session moderator for an upcoming annual statewide workforce development conference.

Mikota will moderate a session titled Building the Pipeline by Changing Perceptions of High-Demand Jobs on Sept. 13 in Columbia at the state's 2018 Workforce Development Symposium, according to a release distributed by the college last week.

The conference will be Sept. 12 and 13 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

The panel at the session that Mikota is moderating will include key stakeholders in the workforce development pipeline from the economic development community, K-12 education and private business.

According to the symposium's agenda, the panel will discuss outdated perceptions and misconceptions by South Carolinians about careers in manufacturing, health care, information technology and other technical-related industries.

Mikota is also a member of the state's Workforce Investment Board, which is in part putting on the conference. Other event partners include the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, the state Department of Employment and Workforce and the state Technical College System.
