GARRISON COMMANDER, REDSTONE ARSENAL
There’s incredible technology research and development going on here in northern Alabama. Education is a priority for us because our employees need to continue their educations, we need to replenish our aging workforce and because our employees want the same educational opportunities that they enjoyed for their kids.
We rely on the community and they also rely on us. We want our education systems to be world-class – from Pre-K programs all of the way through to PhD and beyond. Our missions are world-wide and even interstellar. It’s amazing to think what the next generation may accomplish and we’re grateful to have good education partners with common goals.
We rely on a wide variety of skill sets and are dependent on the best and brightest in the world. In order to attract and maintain the best we need to provide more than great job opportunities; we need to do everything we can to provide a great quality of life in areas outside of job satisfaction. Education is a big part of that.
