(MOBILE, Ala., January 19, 2022) - Bishop State Community College is hosting an informational session about its new program FAME on the Coast, a chapter of Alabama Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education or Alabama FAME. The session will take place on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at 9 a.m. at Bishop State’s Main Campus located at 351 North Broad Street; Mobile, Ala. 36603.

The new work-based learning program will provide students working experience as well as training in a classroom and lab setting while meeting the employment needs and challenges in advanced manufacturing.
