On Thursday, February 22nd, 2018, Tuscaloosa County School System held a ribbon cutting for Brookwood Logistics Center. Today’s facilities highlight the partnerships and dedicated support of West AlabamaWorks, Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama, Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, BLG Logistics, and ARD Logistics.
The Brookwood Technical High School will provide a training facility for high school students and adults for the automotive industry, specifically in regards to logistics, forklift operation, and advanced manufacturing. Future growth will add early childhood, culinary, and hospitality programs.
This ribbon cutting signifies the completion of phase one. Phase one included the remodeling of sections of the old Brookwood High School, specifically the band room and the gymnasium. The band room will be used as a classroom and the gym will serve as a hands-on forklift training facility and is outfitted with a high rack system. High school students will use the facility during normal school hours and in the evening Shelton State will use the facility for adult instruction.
