MGM National Harbor will celebrate opening of employment center on Monday
MGM National Harbor, the $1.3 billion entertainment resort casino under development in Prince George’s County, Md., plans the grand opening of its employment center on Monday, June 20. Formerly known as Thomas Addison Elementary school, the renovated building will house training programs and provide assistance to candidates in 100 available job classifications.
The newly renovated facility currently houses the Prince George’s Community College Dealer School, where about 200 students are learning four table games, ncluding Blackjack and Baccarat. MGM National Harbor expects to hire about 3,600 employees over the next several months. The new casino project is part of National Harbor, a mixed-use project on the banks of the Potomac River, just across the Woodrow Wilson bridge from Northern Virginia.
MGM National Harbor executives, local and political leaders will gather for the center's grand opening. The company said Lorenzo Creighton, president and COO, MGM National Harbor, will be on hand along with Bill Boasberg, general manager, and Logan Gaskill, the resort's vice president of human resources.
The ceremony will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the building at 7100 Oxon Hill Rd. Tours of the facility will follow a ribbon cutting.
