Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) today toured the industrial manufacturing center at Kirkwood Community College and met with administrators, faculty, and students to learn more about the high-tech training programs they offer, including advanced welding, computer-aided design (CAD), industrial maintenance, and carpentry.

“It was great to visit Kirkwood Community College today and learn more about the world-class industrial technology programs they offer. These programs give students in-demand skills so that they can get high-paying jobs in our community after they graduate. Congresswoman Ashley Hinson

Last week, Hinson helped introduce the bipartisan Jumpstart Our Businesses By Supporting Students (JOBS) Act, which expands Pell Grant eligibility to qualifying short-term training programs to help more Americans gain access to career and technical education training programs.
