FAIRMONT, W.Va (WDTV) - Pierpont Community and Technical College hosted an open house for Mylan employees on Wednesday.

Mylan Education Day is an opportunity for anyone to explore the educational opportunities at Pierpont. The college says it’s holding the event to not only share these opportunities with the community, but specifically for Mylan plant employees that could lose their jobs in the near future.

“What’s really important in the throes of that is, not that they’re losing their jobs, I’m truly sorry that that’s happening, but Pierpont is here and ready to work with those individuals if they chose to come back and then be re-trained,” said Dr. Hancock.

Roughly 1,000 Mylan plant workers are expected to lose their jobs if the plant closes as scheduled on July 31, 2021.
