LCCC President Dr. Roy Church Named to National Education Council

Lorain County Community College President Dr. Roy A. Church was recently named as one of 26 charter members from across the country to the first-ever National Education Council focused on expanding and enhancing the manufacturing workforce.  

“In these difficult economic times, we must create new educational pathways to help more individuals prepare for high-paying manufacturing jobs and, in turn, help our companies compete in world markets,” said Emily DeRocco, president of The Manufacturing Institute and former U.S. assistant secretary of labor for employment and training.

“Dr. Church will help the Education Council provide leadership, counsel and research to ensure America’s manufacturing workforce is properly prepared to compete in the global economy,” DeRocco continued. “This is a big undertaking.  Charter members will focus on issues as wide-ranging as identifying solutions to address the adult literacy crisis, designing regional manufacturing talent development systems, creating 21st century career and technical education programs and advancing innovation in the manufacturing economy,” she said.

Representing K-12, community and technical colleges and 4-year colleges and universities, the educators and officials were tapped by The Manufacturing Institute to assist in developing national strategies to keep the American manufacturing workforce globally competitive and create more high-paying jobs.  The Manufacturing Institute is the research, education and workforce arm of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

“The Education Council will help shape major education and workforce development initiatives to close the skills gap, help young people and transitioning workers find new careers in the manufacturing economy and ensure that U.S. manufacturers can continue to lead the world in innovation and productivity.  The work of the Education Council is part of a broad strategic agenda to recruit, educate and employ the 21st century manufacturing workforce,” DeRocco said.
