Ryan M. Moss, M.Ed., has joined the staff of the Center for Educational Outreach and Engagement (CEOE) to serve as the coordinator of the state funded Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act grant (WIOA). The WIOA grant is a partnership between Auburn University Outreach (CEOE, Office of Professional and Continuing Education and Faculty Engagement), Harbert School of Business, Macon County and Bullock County Career Technical Education programs and the Black Belt Community Foundation. AU will provide education and training to high school juniors and seniors, including supplemental leadership services.

Mr. Moss will be responsible for the oversight and administration of the grant providing technical reporting to the State of Alabama.
