This year the Alamo Colleges’ Alamo Academies won in the Workforce Development category. The Alamo Colleges is only the second nominee to win the award twice and the first to be nominated twice in one year! The Alamo Colleges received the 2012 Bellwether Award in the Planning, Governance and Finance category and was also a finalist in the Workforce Development category in 2013.

This recognition places the Alamo Colleges in a select group of leading community colleges. The field of Bellwether nominations was very competitive this year, with more than 1,000 programs nominated. From these, 323 were reviewed and ten finalists were selected, including two from the Alamo Colleges, Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training (I-BEST) and the Alamo Academies.
