February is National Career & Technical Education Month and we are ready to celebrate here in the Warsaw Area Career Center all month long!
Throughout the month we will be showcasing not only all the programs we offer, but more importantly the amazing teachers who continue to enrich the lives of their students by encouraging them to pursue their dreams, the students who are furthering their skills & knowledge by participating in these outstanding courses, and our local industry partners who help make it all possible. Below is our first student highlight:
Allison Loy is a current senior here at WCHS/WACC in our Work Based Learning program with Mrs. Heinsman. She interns at Dr. Hollar Dentistry where she not only helps clean, stock, & set up patient rooms, but also helps in their sterilization lab. In her spare time, she works hard cheering on the Varsity Cheerleading Squad and enjoys spending time with her family & cats at home. Allison loves working at the dentist office and the experience she has gained there has helped steer her toward a decision to major in Veterinary Technology at International Business College in Fort Wayne.
Be sure to stay tuned this month as we not only feature more stories about our wonderful staff, students, and community partners, but also explain more about what CTE month is all about!
Directly from the Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE) website, CTE Month® is a public awareness campaign ACTE holds each February to celebrate Career and Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country. CTE Month 2017, with its tagline of "Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow!" gives us the chance to inform others of the innovation and excellence that exists within our local CTE programs and raise awareness of the crucial role that CTE plays in readying our students for careers and our nation for economic success.
