PRLog - Nov. 6, 2012 - EDINA, Minn. -- Doherty Staffing Solutions executives presented a check for $15,000 to Minnesota West Community and Technical College (MN West) in a brief meeting at the Doherty office in Owatonna, Minnesota, on Monday, October 22. On hand to accept the funds for MN West were Dawn Regnier, Director of Customized Training, Les Kvam, Program Coordinator - Manufacturing & Trade, and Dr. Richard Shrubb, President of the Worthington campus. Doherty’s donation to MNWest is the first fundraising project the staffing company has completed for the college.

The funds are earmarked for a new portable classroom on campus, a self-contained welding trailer. The welding training program is a jobs initiative partially funded by the Minnesota Job Skills Partnership Board (http://www.positivelyminnesota.com/All_Programs_Services/Minnesota_Job_Skills_Partnership_Program/The_Minnesota_Job_Skills_Partnership_Board/index.aspx) for students and dislocated workers in rural Minnesota, to address a shortage of skilled welders in the region.

Working toward a bright future for southwestern Minnesota students and residents

Doherty Staffing Solutions Chairman and owner Tim Doherty was in Owatonna to present the check to Regnier, Kvam, and Shrubb on Monday. He said, “Our contribution to Minnesota West Community and Technical College is the beginning of a new partnership with the college and the communities it serves in southwest Minnesota. This contribution, along with that of other organizations, helps build relationships between private and public institutions, which is the best way to develop a strong and dynamic economy. Cities that MN West serves—like Marshall, Worthington, and Pipestone—need skilled welders as well as workers and new entrepreneurs to grow and attract industry, and to keep Minnesota’s workforce the best in the nation. The Doherty family and companies are proud to be part of this important endeavor.”

Dr. Shrubb had this to say about Doherty’s fundraising and donation, “Doherty Staffing Solutions and MN West are both in the education and employment business and we’re proud of our partnership.”
