“FAME students have the unique opportunity to work and get experience while receiving instruction,” said Alan Smith, Dean of Workforce Development at Gadsden State, to the students, according to the release. “Today, you are signing your golden ticket. If you do everything asked of you by the college and by your employer, you will graduate and immediately start a career making as much as as 60,000.”
