The Alamo Colleges is taking its "Mobile Go" RV across City Council District 5 this week with a message of secondary education to high school seniors. The tour is aimed at getting students signed up for college before they walk the stage.
Representatives from the Alamo Colleges told students they have good jobs waiting for them as soon as they complete programs such as the aircraft certification or an Associates Degree in other aviation fields.

The Alamo Colleges have received a multimillion dollar grant from the Texas Workforce Commission to train 1,000 rackers. The Rackspace employees will receive special training for cloud computing from the Alamo Colleges.
The $2.5 million awarded to the school from the Workforce Commission's Skills Development Fund will create a tailored program called the Cloud Academy.
