WHEN WE WIN – Our Lives Will Change

WHEN WE WIN, our lives will change in Tuskegee and Macon County. This message of faith and optimism has been shared all over the community, most recently with public housing residents.

The Presidents of the Resident Councils were invited to a presentation on the T-100 project. The goal was for the public housing leaders to learn about the T-100,  ask the questions that are important to their constituents and spread the information throughout the public housing community.

In a meeting room at the Tuskegee Housing Authority, a highly productive experience unfolded and even young children were present, soaking up the knowledge.

Joe Turnham explained the history of the T-100, background of Leonardo DRS, historical connection between the Tuskegee Airmen and this project and the economic impact the T-100 manufacturing plant could potentially have on Tuskegee and Macon County.

The attendees asked candid questions about a wide range of issues including whether utility rates could be a detriment to this project and future large-scale opportunities, the types of jobs that will be available at the T-100 manufacturing facility and whether age would be a barrier to getting hired.
