22. Augusta County Schools “Augusta County Schools is very pleased with the results thus far regarding the Secretary Apprentice Program. Secretaries are improving their skills and a sense of pride has been observed from those enrolled in the program. Morale is high; they appear to be enjoying the workplace and making the workplace more pleasant. I realize a high degree of camaraderie is taking place. Many of those enrolled have already seen the personal gains of a higher paycheck. Overall secretarial skills have improved; thus making each secretary more valuable to the organization.” Dwight McAllister Assistant Superintendent of Personnel Augusta County Schools2

23. UVA FACILITIES MANAGEMENT “Since 1982, Facilities Management at the University of Virginia has worked closely with DOLI’s Apprentice Council to train more than 100 apprentices in the building trades. Twenty-five years later, our program is still going strong with more than 30 apprentices currently in training. As recruitment, retention and aging workforce issues continue to challenge us, our Apprentice Program is more critical than ever in helping us provide highly skilled and licensed trades people for our workforce of tomorrow.” Donna Barnes Franko HR Manager for UVA Facilities Management
