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.

“Birmingham Landmarks, Inc. certainly made the right decision in selecting NCDS to raise the $7 million needed to fully restore our sadly dilapidated and abandoned former vaudeville theatre in downtown Birmingham.  Your firm provided the wisdom and experience to position the project as worthy of support, then structured a winning campaign that was creative, energizing, and relentless in pursuit of the goal.  We were especially appreciative of your flexibility relative to our early cash flow issues, and even more so in the selection of the assigned NCDS Project Executive.  Because of the success and momentum of your phase of this exceptional campaign, the Lyric staff was able to continue seeking commitments utilizing tax credits, and the total raised now exceeds $11.8 million.  Thanks to NCDS, Birmingham can boast of having one of the most spectacularly restored performing arts theaters in America.”
