Michelin North America donated $100,000 to Greenville Technical College for scholarships and equipment in advanced manufacturing programs.
“There is a significant benefit for Michelin in hiring locally when possible,” said Pete Selleck, chairman and president of Michelin North America. “First, we know that we will retain local workers longer, and secondly we are investing back into the community where we live. An important part of being able to secure local, career-ready reliability technicians is educational institutions such as Greenville Technical College that have high-value programs for people looking to work in this growing field.”
Dr. Keith Miller, president of Greenville Tech, said the donation would help the college develop and sustain a skilled workforce.
