Kosciusko Attala Partnership awards $1,000 to Career-Tech Center students for National Career Readiness Certificate Testing.


The Kosciusko Attala Partnership received a $1,000 grant that is being awarded to the Attala County Career Technical Center to provide National Career Readiness Certificate testing to more than 30 students.

The testing will all take place at the Holmes Community College Attala Center.

“More and more employers are requiring the ACT WorkKeys NCRC tests and as a work ready community, we want to ensure that as many students as possible can take it. Our partnership with the Career Technical Center is very important and their leadership in workforce development and training for future generations has proven to be very effective for students entering college or seeking work right out of high school,” said Darren Milner, Executive Director of the Kosciusko Attala Partnership.

The test has three sections with each test having a fee of $10.

“This really helps many of the students who might otherwise not be able to afford it,” said Tracy Hardy, Counselor, Career Technical Center.

“Holmes Community College is extremely happy to partner with the Kosciusko Attala Partnership to offer this to students in our local community.

It is a wonderful opportunity for these students that can have a huge impact on their future and the career path they choose,” said Mandy Burrell, Workforce Coordinator and Assistant Director of the Attala Center.
