skill gap in local workforce leads to loss of biz "@NewsLeaderNOW: Biotech firm ARG leaving Staunton dlvr.it/10DfZJ" lessons learned?
SAW Economic Development folks need to press local school boards and partner with area colleges to continue to encourage a stronger supply of scientists and engineers. Biotech is a high potential business sector, and we need to press on for progress in fostering a workforce that is attractive to this sector.
Educators at BRCC and JMU get this concept. Not so sure local government leaders are up-to-speed on this issue.
Hopefully there will be some lessons learned with the loss of this biotech company.
