Golden Triangle achieves certification as ACT WorkReady Community

The Golden Triangle region announced that it has met all criteria to become a certified ACT Work Ready Community. This achievement caps a 2-year process and begins a two-year growth and maintenance phase to retain certification.

The initiative was led by East Mississippi Community College and the Golden Triangle Development LINK, with area leaders from Clay, Lowndes and Oktibbeha counties assisting throughout the certification process. The Workforce Services department at EMCC has been providing the WorkKeys assessment for more than a decade, making the certification process easy with a steady supply of candidates with their National Career Readiness Certificate.
