PARSIPPANY — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill spent the morning today with students, faculty, and County College of Morris (CCM) President, Dr. Anthony J. Iacono, to learn more about the collaborative efforts taking place between local institutions and businesses. While at CCM, Congresswoman Sherrill learned about how the school’s curriculum provides its students with the education and preparation required in today’s rapidly changing workplace.
Following her visit to CCM, Congresswoman Sherrill headed to Evonik and Metem, a GE Power business, where she toured both company’s facilities, hearing from workers and managers about their respective cutting-edge work in research and development, as well as the need for a workforce versed in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
“New Jersey produces world-class talent, and my visits to the County College of Morris, Metem, and Evonik today confirmed that fact,” said Congresswoman Sherrill. “We need to ensure that after our students receive a quality education, there is a path to a good job waiting for them here at home. As a member of the House Science Committee, I will take the lessons learned about education and career development with me back to Congress, and keep advocating for greater opportunities for workforce development.”
