As successful graduates of an earlier federal training program, Anne Arundel Community College alumni Gary Pollard Jr. and Ginny Quillen were part of the White House program announcing new training opportunities under a grant the U.S. Department of Labor.

Anne Arundel Community College has received a $817,368 federal grant award from the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration job training programs as part of $14,957,899 in funding provided to 14 Maryland community colleges.

The awards were announced recently at a White House event at which two AACC alumni, Gary Pollard Jr., and Ginny Quillen, spoke about how training from an earlier federal grant program helped them move into good careers in the high-demand cyber technology industry. Pollard and Quillen then had the honor of introducing Vice President Joe Biden. Pollard later wrote of the experience in a blog posted on the White House website.

During the four-year term of the grant, AACC will use the funding to develop an application that will personalize learning for students. For more information, visit http://www.aacc.edu/newsonline\2014\12\TAACCCT.cfm.
