Trenholm State Community College and the Alabama Technology Network (ATN) collaborated to provide an array of technical and professional services for To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company. To Your Health is a family-owned and operated small business in a farm setting in rural Alabama. It offers freshly milled flours from organic sprouted grains.
The sprouting, drying and milling process is all done in its facilities in Fitzpatrick. To Your Health mills each order fresh to provide its customers the best sprouted flour possible. Its customer list includes Whole Foods Markets, Arrowhead Mills, the Hain-Celestial Group, Anita’s Organic Milling (Canada), LaBree’s Bakery and Kellogg.
In January 2016, ATN began working with To Your Health on an Enterprise Resource Planning Assessment. From that assessment, ATN became the project manager overseeing the installation of To Your Health’s high definition security cameras, VOIP, fiber optics and wireless Internet needs. With this ongoing work, Trenholm State Community College has provided HACCP/food safety, CPR, OSHA 10, forklift driving and job readiness training, and worked with ATN to facilitate Lean 101, Total Productive Maintenance, 5S of Workplace Organization and Kaizen Events training.
To Your Health continues to grow with the project management and training provided by ATN and Trenholm State.
The nursing program at the “new” Coastal Alabama Community College (created by the merger of Faulkner, Alabama Southern and Jeff Davis community colleges) was recently ranked the best in Alabama by RegisteredNursing.org.
Nursing programs were assessed on several factors that represent how well a program supports students toward licensure and beyond. RegisteredNursing.Org analyzed past and present National Council Licensure Examination “pass-rates,” weighted by year. The NCLEX is the standardized exam that each state board of nursing uses to determine whether or not a candidate is prepared for entry-level nursing practice.
“With the goal to give the best education that money can buy, Coastal State Community College, located in Bay Minette, Alabama, is prepared to help RN’s meet the challenges of nursing through a variety of study options,” RegisteredNursing.org said.
