Last month, Kenneth Sales, Business Services Team Lead, KRA/Waccamaw Region SCWorks One-Stop, was nominated for the Outstanding Workforce System Partner Award by a long-standing and valued workforce partner, Williamsburg Technical College (WTC)*. Nominations are being reviewed currently by the State Investment Board, and all nominees will be acknowledged…and the 1st and 2nd place winners announced…at a Luncheon Awards Ceremony on May 14, 2013, as part of a State Workforce Symposium. Also, Sales has been asked to lead a Symposium workshop, the focus of which will be “Effective Delivery of Business and Employer Services.” Regardless of the outcome, all of KRA is proud of Sales, who has always been a winner…for KRA; its client, the Waccamaw Regional Council of Governments; and the customers we serve. Also, KRA is grateful to WTC for nominating Sales in recognition of his significant contribution to the Waccamaw Region’s workforce development system.
*WTC is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award AA and AS Degrees, and is WIA-certified to accept qualified KRA/Waccamaw students for educational advancement in more than 20 areas of study from Administrative Office Technology to Welding. However, due the steady demand for Healthcare workers in the area, many KRA/Waccamaw customers successfully complete degrees in the areas of Certified Nursing Assistant, Medical Billing and Coding, Medical Office Clerical Assistant, Practical Nursing, and related programs.
