On May 30th the AWMA held a signing day for local graduates that were enrolled in a work-based learning program through school and plan on going into the workforce full time after graduation. Graduates along with their teacher or school representative and future employer all sat down and signed certificates of intent. As a gift of encouragement from the AWMA, signers also received a $150 check. AWMA believes that the initiative these students took to plan ahead for their future is impressive and we are excited to see where their careers take them.

The Adams Wells Manufacturing Alliance (AWMA) is proud to present the first “signing day”. Every spring we see high school athletes signing letters of intent to play for a college as their parents and coaches glow with pride. This signing day is a little different and we will be celebrating students that are choosing to enter the workforce or post-secondary education training landing a job after school. This event is scheduled on May 30th at 6pm. The event will start off by recognizing the graduates and providing light food and refreshments in their honor. The signing will begin at 7pm. This event is being held at the Riverside Center in Decatur. (231 E Monroe Street)
There will be 12 local graduates signing certificates of intent. The graduate's future employer and a school representative will be there to sign the certificate as well. Each graduate is also receiving a $150 check from the AWMA as a signing bonus. The general public is welcome and encouraged to attend this event. AWMA is very proud of these students for seeing a need in the work force and taking initiative to further their skills with training to fill the gap. We look forward to honoring them tomorrow night and we hope to see you there!
