Cairo- The creation of 400 new jobs in Grady County this year has a local technical school questioning whether the workforce has the right skills. Representatives from Southwest Georgia Technical College, the Grady County Chamber of Commerce and business leaders sat down Tuesday to discuss what type of laborers will be needed to fill these new jobs.

"We're very excited that the community is growing and we want to be apart of that. We're here today to discuss the current and future employment needs and also to identify education and training needs and how we can help to meet those needs," said Joyce Halstead, VP Student Service.

Southwest Georgia Technical College says they will consider adding new programs if warranted. The college is building a satellite campus in Grady County along Highway 84.
