Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON, N.C.––Gaston College has a new face in its economic and work force development department.

The college recently hired Dr. Justin Arnold as the department’s associate vice president, according to college spokeswoman Stephanie Michael Pickett. Arnold is responsible for managing business and industry training, continuing education and human resources development.

Arnold has been involved in work force development across a variety of sectors, including private industry, government and community organizations. He believes that systems-thinking and cross-sector collaboration are the keys to success in work force education. For most of his career, he lived in Michigan.

From 2002 to 2010, he served as the educational program manager for a non-profit organization, while working as a production lead in manufacturing. From 2010 to’ 17, he completed three degrees while working in corporate training and volunteering as a city planning commissioner; serving as a non-profit consultant; and being a board member of the local chamber of commerce. Most recently, from last year to this one, he engaged in post-doc work at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln as a work force development specialist and extension faculty member.

In 2017, Arnold earned his PhD in educational leadership with a concentration in work force development at Western Michigan University. Four years earlier, he earned a master of science degree in career and technical education with a concentration in corporate training at Ferris State University. And in 2012, he earned a bachelor of science degree in public and non-profit administration with a concentration in economic development at Grand Valley State University.

Arnold recently said he is looking forward to rolling up his sleeves.

“I’m excited to be a part of the economic and work force development division of Gaston College,” he said. “The team of educational specialists I work with is amazing, and it feels good to be part of an optimistic and growing community. I look forward to contributing to the success of businesses and workers in Gaston and Lincoln counties.”
