The Inside Scoop: WellStar Commits to Developing Student Careers


WellStar is one of the largest healthcare systems in the state and has been an active partner with Cobb Schools for years. They recently strengthened that support with a 25-year commitment to the Healthcare and Community Services pillar at the Cobb Innovation and Technology Academy (CITA).

On this episode of The Inside Scoop, David Owen interviews John Floresta and Felicia Wagner about this new partnership and what it means for the District and the county moving forward.

Healthcare professionals from WellStar collaborated in designing the curriculum, which will help to provide direct access to jobs within their network. The training will give students the best education and preparation possible for working in the industry and ensure that graduates will be ready to go straight to work.

The new partnership will provide many benefits for both Cobb students and WellStar, including exposure to healthcare professionals, access to scholarships, and employment opportunities. It will also help with equipment purchases and enhanced learning experiences.

This partnership is only one of many made possible by the Cobb Schools Foundation, and Felicia Wagner emphasizes the importance of local businesses aligning with Cobb Schools to foster a skilled workforce.
