SECRETARY HUGHS ANNOUNCES COLLABORATION WITH AWS EDUCATE


Texas Secretary of State, Ruth Hughs, announced a new collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to unlock job opportunities in cloud computing. The initiative will scale to create pathways towards high-paying, tech related careers for students across the state of Texas. This announcement came as Texas government, education, and economic development officials met with AWS representatives at the Dallas County Community College District administration office.

As part of the collaboration, academic institutions will leverage AWS Educate, Amazon’s global initiative to support cloud learning with students or faculty, to build computer and data-related skills for K-12 curriculum as well as associate’s or bachelor’s degree programs. The collaboration will also work with employers throughout Texas who have a growing need for tech-workers with cloud computing skills.

AWS Educate is in collaboration with a number of Texas institutions, including the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Texas State University System, as well as the institutions which are pursuing a cloud computing degree including Alamo Colleges, Austin Community College, and South Texas College.
