MO college is preparing to help displaced workers

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT)- As Dexter, Missouri automotive manufacturer Faurecia plans to layoff 500 workers before September, Three Rivers Community College is preparing to help those workers.

The college is preparing to respond with new training programs focused on the Dexter area.  A new Dexter campus will be opening this month.

According to the college's website Three Rivers Vice President for Learning Dr. Wes Payne says, "A number of additional programs could quickly be geared-up and directed toward serving Dexter's displaced workforce through the new Dexter Center as needed."

The Three Rivers administration is currently exploring the option of developing special classes, so that the displaced workers can start pursuing job training immediately, rather than wait for a summer or fall semester to begin.

For more information on programs and classes at the Three Rivers Center at Dexter call (573) 614-1081.
