President Giordano Featured on Plexuss’ Presidential Podcast

“We’re really working hard to create the partnerships with the industries and high schools so we can say, here’s a pipeline. Here’s a pathway. you’re going to get introduced to the business from the very beginning. You’ll get introduced to these career opportunities at a young age, and we’re going to show you a clear path and it’s going to be supported all the way through. Once you’re at Villa, you’ll have opportunities to intern, to apprentice, to have people from that business speak and serve as a mentor. Once you get into the company, we’ll still try and support you through that transition. It’s going to take that kind of commitment in order for this to really work…These really firm partnerships between industry and education in order to really make sure our students are aligned in the best way possible with the opportunities that are available here in WNY in order for our economy to really grow.”
