Cummins is bringing a global program to a Memphis high school, marking a first for the company.
Cummins currently has 22 Technical Education for Communities [TEC] sites around the globe, though none are currently located within the U.S. But, on Thursday, that will change as the company and its more than 10 local partners sign a Memorandum of Understanding to mark the official launch of the initiative at T-STEM Academy East High School. The program will begin in August.
TEC targets the technical skills gap through vocational education programs; in Memphis, the program will focus on developing future diesel technicians.
