My German Chancellor Fellowship had a profound impact on my career. My time as director of the Mississippi Apprenticeship Program, a registered apprenticeship initiative seeking to better link the private sector, K-K-16 education, and community partners, was directly informed by my time learning about the German vocational education and training system at the Federal Institute for Vocational Training in Bonn. I continue to maintain strong ties with all things German and am focused on building a new type of transatlantic partnership and dialogue, one focused on how Germany interacts with communities throughout the US South.
