“My expectation was that people in need of a better opportunity would come to the job fair,:” Sewell said.

“People want good paying jobs and workers want good people. It takes education and a employment opportunity.”

WCCS President Dr. James Mitchell thanked Sewell for having the job fair on his campus. He also praised Sewell for her work in the whole district.

“What a great day for Selma and the Seventh Congressional District,” Mitchell said. “Congresswoman Sewell has a busy schedule and could’ve gone anywhere, but she chose Selma.”
