Lockheed Martin's commitment to continuous education has provided veterans and displaced workers the training and financial support they need to be successful in our exciting industry. Cory, congratulations on winning this award, which highlights IPC's focus on education and workforce development. Let's start with a little bit about yourself and your company. Thank you. First, I'm honored to work at Lockheed Martin, a company that's com- mitted to cultivating the next generation of technical talent that supports our nation's most critical needs. We utilize STEM out- reach and partnership, and we have educa- tional institutions like the local one that I partnered with at Angelina College, as well as K–12 school districts, and we focus on hiring and training those regional students here in Lufkin. We want current and future Lockheed Martin employees to be well prepared. Why is continuous self-improvement and learning so important to you personally? The IPC Excellence in Education Award is given to individuals who have made a significant contribution and demonstrated leadership in workforce development while building a culture of continuous learning within their organization and across the electronics industry.
