MCALLEN, Texas – The Texas Workforce Commission has recognized South Texas College for its vital work assisting students so they acquire the skills needed to succeed in the workforce. 

Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) programs funded by TWC provide English language, math, reading, and writing instruction to help students acquire the skills needed in the workforce, earn a high school equivalency, or enter college or career training.

STC was presented with TWC’s award for Adult Education Employer Partnerships, recognizing AEL provider efforts in building and expanding partnerships between employers and the AEL program.

Olivia De La Rosa, director of Continuing Professional and Workforce Education (CPWE) and Dr. Carlos Margo, associate dean of Industry Training and Economic Development, attended the 23rd Annual Texas Workforce Conference held in Grapevine, Texas on behalf of the college Dec 4-6. 

The 2019 conference, cohosted with the Texas chapter of the International Association of Workforce Professionals, served as a hub for information exchange, groundbreaking concepts, and state-of-the-art methods that affect the entire state.

The conference included over 1400 state and national workforce professionals, members and staff from all 28 Local Workforce Development Boards as well as economic development professionals, state and federal staff, and partners in the workforce system.
