We all cheer when our teams beat rivals Georgia, LSU, Florida and Tennessee in recruiting athletes.
We should also cheer when we trump those states in recruiting jobs.
Alabama's recruited thousands this year. The challenge will be continuing to find workers as we continue to recruit thousands more.
Enter the one billion dollar enterprise that can help - our two year college system.
For all the stains suffered by the system, the reality is this very system will help provide the workers for many of these high paying jobs coming to our state.
It is imperative the system operate with integrity and ramps up to meet the exciting work force development challenges ahead.
