PNAA Selects AJAC for “Inspire Award”


AJAC was honored to receive PNAA’s “Inspire” award during the annual Aerospace Conference in Lynnwood, Washington. AJAC’s Executive Director, Lynn Strickland accepted the award during the Aerospace Excellence Awards Banquet.

AJAC was selected for continually growing our adult apprenticeship program regionally and for pioneering the state’s first Youth Apprenticeship program in Tacoma, Washington. Our region has recognized the importance of providing youth with apprenticeship opportunities in high-growth, high-demand industries such as aerospace and advanced manufacturing. Through Youth Apprenticeship, other industries including healthcare, IT and construction can provide high school students with an early opportunity to develop job-ready skills and mentorship before they graduate.  

Thank you again to PNAA which has been an avid supporter of AJAC and our efforts to keep Washington State as the leader in aerospace manufacturing.
