“My goal is we continue to grow,” she said. “I’m getting out to Gulf and Franklin Counties, and meeting with employers. We’ll capture what cities want and need. We’re implanting as we go.”

One example that both she and Roberson cited was a recently created welding class for about a dozen students. “Clearly that was something that we heard,” she said. She said the campus is also working on a correctional officer program that might serve Franklin County residents closer than the Port St. Joe campus.

Costin also noted the certified nursing assistant program being offered at St. James Bay Rehab Center outside Carrabelle.

“As much as possible,” stressed Kerley. “We want to partnership, partnership, partnership.”

Oehlert outlined for trustees the math and English courses Gulf Coast is involved in teaching at the Eastpoint campus.

“It’s easier to get here than drive to Port St. Joe,” he said. “Our students need more to be getting ready for careers. Our students need to see some hope. Family traditions may not be counted on any longer.”
