Closing in on completing its Work Ready goals, Ottawa County held its official public launch of CWRC. County leaders gathered to celebrate the CWRC launch June 23rd at the Coleman Theater in Miami. While Oklahoma pioneered the local work ready initiative for its counties, Ottawa is the first in the Sooner State to “light up” in the nationwide ACT framework for CWRC. The Miami News Record newspaper covered highlights of the event.
Oklahoma enjoys strong participation in the youth/emerging/student category for the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) through partnerships with career-technical education. As county leaders complete the remaining few NCRCs required, the launch of employer endorsements locally will push Ottawa past the finish line as a nationally-certified Work Ready Community.
