NAM’s Manufacturing Institute Recognizes Eleven Florida Colleges Offering ET Degree
Association of Manufacturers’ Manufacturing Institute has included 11 colleges from the Florida State College System as charter members of its “M-List” that recognizes schools for excellence in manufacturing education. The FL DOE also indicated that the Manufacturing Institute acknowledges Florida as the national leader with the most schools on the list. The 11 Florida colleges that made the “M-List” are: Brevard Community College, Broward College, College of Central Florida, Florida Gateway College, Florida State College at Jacksonville, Hillsborough Community College, Pensacola State College, Polk State College, St. Petersburg College, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota, and Tallahassee Community College.
Alessandro Anzalone, Mike Cannon, Eric Roe, Brad Jenkins, Adrienne Gould-Choquette and Bruce Batton from the Florida colleges on the “M-List”. Without their efforts, none of the colleges would be on the list. In addition, FLATE anticipates that Florida’s impact on the “M-List” will go up because the ET degree has very recently been adopted by Gulf Coast State College and Northwest Florida State College. Finally, a very special “thank you” to Eric Owens, senior director of adult and career education at FL DOE for his ongoing support of our work. Without his help, the ET degree would have never gotten off the FLATE drawing board. Thanks gang!
