Lack of soft skills, such as communication, teamwork and professionalism, in potential workers can often be the difference between successful and unsuccessful employees. In order to help students better acquire these skills, INVISTA recently donated $10,000 to the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) to implement Microburst Learning’s EmployABILITY program. KCSD high school students will receive EmployABILITY’s instruction via both hands-on training and online software programs. Students who complete the program have the opportunity to earn a certification showing mastery of soft skills. Shown (from left) are Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) Career Specialist Maria Springs; L-EHS Assistant Principal Alicia Gaither; L-EHS Senior Hailey Bracey; L-EHS English Teacher Robert Blinkhorn; KCSD Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins; INVISTA Human Resources Generalist Annette Little; INVISTA Site Manager Steve Kimpton; and ATEC Director Gordon Morris.
