GHEC Offering Classes to Qualify for Nufarm Jobs

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Fall classes have begun at the Greenville Higher Education Center to help people hoping for a job at the new Nufarm facility learn the skills they need to successfully apply. The nine-week basic skills manufacturing class has so far seen only about a dozen people apply, but, Cary Karlson, executive director of the Washington County Economic Alliance told county supervisors that hundreds had actually completed the course over the last few years. Nufarm announced a $20 million dollar investment in Greenville last month that is expected to eventually bring some 68 jobs with a starting wage of $45,000 to the city. Nufarm hopes to begin construction next month and be in operation by April of next year.
