Help make Pulaski County a Certified Work Ready Community

Pulaski County has been approved by the Missouri State Investment Board as a Work Ready Community In Progress.
There are now 43 Counties participating in the Work Ready Community In Progress Certification Program.

The goal of Certified Work Ready Communities is to attract, retain, and develop a workforce with the education and fundamental skills necessary to succeed in the 21st Century.

The designation demonstrates Pulaski County's dedication and commitment to preparing their workforce for the jobs of today and the jobs of the future. The CWRC in Progress status grants Pulaski County up to two years to attain full CWRC Certification.

Employers are needed to help Pulaski County reach the CWRC Certification. There is no cost involved and does not obligate an employer to anything. It simply indicates you have heard of the NCRC and that you would prefer candidates who apply for your job openings to have a certificate.

To support this effort, go to http://workreadycommunities.org/business/form.
This is a very short registration and only takes two minutes.
The goals for Pulaski County are updated monthly and can be viewed at any time at www.workreadycommunities.org.

The local American Legion sponsored six WHS male students to participate this past summer in the annual Missouri Boys State held at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.

Using the democratic system as a basis, Boys and Girls State construct their own state, utilizing the core values that hold true in everyday lives. They teach the need for competition, the value of public service and the strength of the individual voice and vote. By reinforcing these basic American ideals, Boys and Girls State help to shape the future society.

The attendees and their office(s) at Girls State included: Haley Reckard - party convention delegate, city council; Resha Swanson, party convention delegate, city council and activity director; Salena Hedgepath - House of Representatives; and Katelynn Miller, highway patrol.

The attendees and their office(s) at Boys State included: Jaylin Jones, lead senator of the county, ward committee chair and Boys Nation nominee; Alexander Munoz, House of Representatives, Bacon County vice chair of Nationalist Party; Gambrel City ward leader; Jon Lowe, state delegate, Boys Nation nominee and Duggan City mayor; John Parker, city attorney and a member of the first city to successfully succeed; and Dashawn McCummings, House of Representatives, Speaker Pro Tem, athletic directors and Crowder city ward leader; and Richard Petitt, member of the Senate, election official, ward leader and member of the most athletic city.
