M-CAM Seeks to Bolster Michigan’s Advanced Manufacturing Workforce

Nov. 16, 2016; xconomy.com

During the turbulent election season we all recently endured, a big topic of conversation was trade — specifically how certain policies such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have harmed the domestic manufacturing sector and hollowed out the middle class. Among the many campaign promises made by President-elect Donald Trump was a pledge to renegotiate some of these trade agreements to help bring manufacturing jobs back from overseas.

… M-CAM is a collaboration between Bay College, Grand Rapids Community College, Kellogg Community College, Lake Michigan College, Lansing Community College, Macomb Community College, Mott Community College, and Schoolcraft Community College. Now in the third year of a four-year, $24.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, the program trains students in four key areas of advanced manufacturing: welding, CNC/machining, mechatronics, and production operations.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — A half-mile portion of Tamarack Avenue NW will soon receive a commemorative designation in honor of a fallen Grand Rapids Police Department officer.

… Additional donations will go toward the Robert A. Kozminski Memorial Scholarship, which pays full tuition for a year for one Grand Rapids Community College student interested in law enforcement. The recipient is selected by Kozminski’s parents, Robert and Maria.

(This article doesn’t mention it, but Robert Kozminski is an alumnus of GRCC’s Police Academy.)
