The partnership is expected to help strengthen Kilgore College tech programs and reflect the needs of the industry for areas such as I.T., software development, cloud support and data analysis.

“I’m so excited about this collaboration. I am actually looking to doing a degree in the cloud computing and business management, because it’s what employers want. I see it all the time online. Cloud computing expert, or could computing wanted, cloud computing desired. And it’s just something I want to do.” Richard Mark, Kilgore College student, said.
