Lowe's Market meets with Windham School District
Lowe’s Supermarket, headquartered in Littlefield, Texas, operates more than 150 stores in Texas and New Mexico. In an effort to meet their hiring needs in its meat market areas in rural Texas towns, Lowe’s contacted Windham School District to form a partnership that will benefit WSD students after release.
Companies always need skilled employees, and WSD continually looks for ways to improve programming to provide these trained workers. This partnership will allow industry insight for WSD to refine its culinary arts program to better prepare students for industry needs. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice provides on-the-job training, in addition to WSD’s programming, that prepares offenders for apprenticeships and jobs with businesses such as Lowe’s Supermarket.
The partnership will benefit both parties and lead to success for WSD students returning home and looking for employment.
