Partners in education


Margaret Kidd, who teaches International Business and Logistics classes at San Jacinto College, recently attended a conference in Florida sponsored by the TAACCCT LINCS Grant Consortium. TAACCCT stands for Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training. LINCS stands for Leveraging Integrating Networking Coordinating. The U.S. Department of Labor grant provides funds to expand IBUS training. Shown at the conference (from left) are Houston Area Urban League Director Eric Goodie, Margaret Kidd, Leslie Backus (National Principle TAACCCT LINCS Grant Investigator, Broward College), and Justin Robinson III, President and CEO of the HAUL. The National Urban League is now an official partner of the TAACCCT LINCS grant and will provide assistance with participant recruiting and career services. In addition to teaching IBUS classes, Ms. Kidd also serves as the TAACCCT LINCS grant project director for San Jacinto College.
