By MIKE JAMES, The Independent Oct 17, 2017

The change in plans that will put Braidy Industries in the EastPark Industrial Center means that the $1.3 billion aluminum manufacturing mill will be within shouting distance of Ashland Community and Technical College’s campus there.

That is big news to the college, which is developing a two-year degree program tailored to train workers for the plant.

“This is phenomenal news. We’re all very excited,” said ACTC President Kay Adkins.
