MONTGOMERY, ALA. – Lt. Governor Ainsworth visited the downtown Montgomery innovation hub, MGMERX. Led by incoming MGMWERX Director, Brig General (Ret) Trent H. Edwards, Ainsworth was toured through the collaborative space and introduced to the services provided by MGMWERX.

“It was our pleasure to host Lt. Governor Ainsworth at MGMWERX and share with him the progress that is being made here in Montgomery, Alabama at MGMWERX” said Trent Edwards, incoming MGMWERX Director. “We are looking forward to further partnership with the State of Alabama and aligning our missions in the areas of defense, education, workforce development, and social innovation.”

During the tour Ainsworth was briefed on several Air University projects being brought to life by MGMWERX. Also, the Lt. Governor interacted with Air University students taking part in the United States Air Force Command and Staff College elective course titled Innovators by Design. This course helps develop future innovators in the United States Air Force and is regularly hosted at MGMWERX.

“MGMWERX strengthens and supports ongoing educational programs for military leaders training at Maxwell’s USAF Air University,” Ainsworth shared on social media. “Its mission, work, and results are much appreciated.”

The MGMWERX innovation hub, which began operations at its current location in December 2018, supports the U.S. Air Force’s Air University through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between DEFENSEWERX and the Air Force Research Laboratory to align with the education initiatives of the university.
