A mobile skills training lab from Southeastern Community College will soon be going to local high schools and elsewhere across Columbus County. The trailer was officially unveiled on Sept. 14 on the SCC campus during a ceremony outside the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center.

“This is going to go a long way in Columbus County in developing the next workforce,” SCC President Chris English told the crowd.
