The Craig Workforce Center’s Kelly Pierce has received a huge honor from the Colorado Department of Labor. Pierce was recently named Employee of the Year for the state, and was recognized at a ceremony in Denver. Pierce was honored for work she did with potential Tri-State Generation and Transmission employees. The power company was having trouble finding qualified candidates that could pass math and reading tests in the application process. Pierce worked with applicants to improve their scores, improving the workforce pool for Tri-State. The honor was mentioned at yesterday’s Moffat County Commissioners meeting.
