Supporting the Selmer community through new school partnership
Jul 1st 2021
At GE Appliances (GEA), we strive to make meaningful investments in the communities where we do business.
That’s why, in addition to our recent product launch in Selmer, Tenn., we’re partnering with McNairy County Schools to launch the Skills Training Alliance for Youth (STAY) work initiative.
This program will offer high school seniors seeking careers in advanced manufacturing part-time employment as they work to complete their high school graduation requirements.
In addition to hiring, training, and coaching up to 10 students per year, GEA will also invest $10,000 to cover certification fees and other expenses incurred by the students in the next four graduating classes.
GEA will also help make classrooms safer this fall with the donation of locally made Zoneline air conditioners featuring the new UV-C light kits that will reduce airborne viruses.
Check out the story from Selmer in the video below.
