Nebraska Workforce Development Moves into Fremont Area Center

Summer 2008 | Archives

MCC´s Fremont Area Center added some new residents to their building this spring when Nebraska Workforce Development moved into the first floor.

The move was done in late April, and the new office was open and ready for action on April 28. Many factors took a part in the move. The Workforce Investment Act federal legislation that passed several years ago encouraged One Stop Career Centers. This emphasis and a need for more space lead Workforce Development to look for an opportunity in Fremont for several years.

"We are very excited to be in the same location as (MCC)," said Nebraska Workforce Development regional manager Bonnie McPhillips. "One of our most important partners is our local community colleges, and we are very excited that MCC wanted us to be a part of their center. We know that (MCC) took a risk in purchasing this building, and we wanted to be a part of their future plans for this center.´

The College has a history as a training provider for Workforce Development clients, partnering with the organization to train workers seeking employment and updating skills for workers looking to keep up with current trends and skills.

"By having MCC and Workforce Development in the same building, it makes training and education more readily available and accessible for everyone," said Todd Hansen, executive director of the Fremont Area Center. Hansen is planning for the Fremont Area Center to partner with Workforce Development for a job fair within the next nine months.
