Jackson-area high school seniors had one week to decide if they wanted to participate in a three-year precision machining and welding program.

Only, they would have to complete it in two years. And, they would be the pioneers -- the first students to ever go through such a program.

Six students were up for the challenge, and all are on to big things, as five now have full-time jobs in the industry and the other is using his job experience to further his education.

On Thursday night, Aug. 11, these six students were honored at Cascades Manor House, 1970 Kibby Road, for completion of the the Jackson Area College and Career Connection Early/Middle College Program, JAC3 for short.

“As the smaller chamber operating in the shadow of a larger, very aggressive one nearby, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber committed to take its game to the next level.  You and the NCDS team not only drove the creation of a bold new multi-year strategy, you generated buy in and a huge boost in revenue.  A great side benefit of launching and funding a new initiative was NCDS’ identification and engagement of a cadre of new leaders who had never really participated, much less invested at significant levels.  Your methodology works, and your experience in hundreds of other communities paid off for us in a major way.  So much so, we plan to kick off the next multi-year campaign this year.   In my book, NCDS remains the ‘gold standard’ for community development fundraising.”
