Now Accepting Applications for Summer Semester!
A partnership between WKW Automotive and Jefferson State Community College will provide local students with financial assistance for tuition and books, a paid internship, and a career opportunity this summer.
The partnership will provide up to 12 Jefferson State manufacturing students an opportunity for a paid 24-hour-a-week internship at WKW Erbsloeh in Pell City. Students will work as an advanced machine operator apprentice while taking classes toward an associate in applied science degree. Classes start May 24 and are within Jefferson State’s Manufacturing Systems Technology AAS degree option.
“The WKW Automotive partnership not only helps students with their educational costs, but it provides a paid internship and equips them with real-world training for in-demand employment,” said Jefferson State Interim President Keith Brown. “This is an exciting opportunity that helps both Jefferson State students and the community.”
“As WKW grows and expands its business with automotive OEM’s, we’re excited to offer an opportunity for talented individuals to build a future together with us and Jefferson State in the form of an apprenticeship,” said WKW Automotive President Todd Green. “This is a fantastic endeavor and WKW is eager to continue this program with Jefferson State.”
“This partnership allows us to provide our customers with great quality work through our new Advanced Machine Operators and will also provide individuals with a great education and career opportunity,” said Green.
