While the Effingham College and Career Academy got to show off again, it was a little surprising and even a little disappointing that the career academy of the year award did not go to the host site for the lieutenant governor’s business and education summit.

Still, the event was beneficial, Effingham IDA CEO John Henry said. Sitting for a full day of workforce development talk can make your eyes glaze over, he said, “but I was enthralled. It was very on point.”

The county also got a lot of recognition for the efforts being made in workforce development and hearing what a large local employer such as Gulfstream and Kia, which has a massive plant near West Point, look for candidates was enlightening.

I got the chance to reconnect with an old co-worker who is now the CEO at the Liberty College and Career Academy, which also is going great guns. Many years ago, we worked together in a fast food restaurant. Nobody at the summit last week asked us about the secret to the chili or what red-white-green, red-white-green means.

Just as well, I suppose.

Following a tangent's end
