Joy Sherry, director of human resources for Ainsworth, based in Meadville, Penn., said the basic skills needed to be successful in the Dumas plant positions include math and computer skills.

“Our success in Dumas is highly dependent on a skilled workforce,” she said. “The ability to use the resources of the Delta Technology Center has and will continue to have a large impact on our ability to develop that skilled workforce.”

Sherry said the city of Dumas has set an example in how to set the stage for the development of highly skilled workers.

“It is amazing what this small community has been able to do in not only developing the building, but getting all of the educational providers to work together to develop our current and future workforce,” she said.
