Alabama automakers step up support for career pathway programs

Alabama’s automakers are expanding their broad-based efforts to create new career pathways for Alabama students interested in developing the skills needed in high-tech workplaces.

Last week, Toyota USA Foundation announced grants of up to $6.7 million to prepare Huntsville City Schools’ students for future careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The collaboration, part of Toyota’s Driving Possibilities initiative, is a five-year phased rollout of programing.

“Our mission is to collaborate with local schools, community partners and other businesses, to help students reach their full potential,” said Jason Puckett, president of Toyota Alabama.

“The success of our students will determine the future of our community.”
