Please join North AlabamaWorks in welcoming Modern Manufacturing Project Manager, Billy Troutman, to the team!

A note from Billy:

“My career has been entrenched in Career Tech education serving as an Ag Teacher, Cooperative Education Coordinator and CTE Director. I know CTE and how it connects with business and industry as well as our post-secondary partners. I have spent my career building relationships with everyone mentioned to provide opportunities for our students. I am extremely excited to continue this passion with secondary, post-secondary and business/industry across North Alabama.

“I believe the Modern Manufacturing Program can play a key role that connects industry to education. Education is a never-ending process and is truly enhanced by craft and skill training. The Modern Manufacturing Program will look different across Region 1 because of the diversity and opportunity in the communities we serve. Region 1 is steeped with wonderful employers who are dedicated to their community and willing to invest time and resources to build capacity for themselves and the citizens of North Alabama and I’m honored to be a part of this process.
