Grant funding for Oregon wine center

Roseburg, Ore.—Umpqua Community College, UCC, won a three-year grant from the Walmart Foundation and the American Association of Community Colleges. The $180,000 grant will support a jobs tranining initiative by the college to recruit new students for the Southern Oregon Wine Institute’s viticulture and enology training programs. “The vision for the project is to fill the regional wine industry with a skilled workforce, reduce the unemployment rate of our region, and strengthen the long-term capability of employing a well-trained workforce,” said UCC grant director Susan Taylor.
