Community Seeds working with Texas Workforce Solutions for jobs and training


Bert Cooper with Community Seeds in Lone Oak says his organization is working with Texas Workforce Solutions on a program whereby if employers agree to hire workers trained by Community Seeds for 90 days, Workforce Solutions will provide funding for additional training of the workers that would allow them to become regular employees of the company.  More employers are needed to participate in the program, Bert says.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
