Fashion & Textiles have been learning about the difference between woven and knit fabrics. They have learned to knit and weave and the projects they have produced are as individual as the students. It has been a fun way to express creativity while learning new skills.
Many Warsaw Area Career Center students participated in & contributed to a community service project titled: Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan's Purse. Operation Christmas Child helps to not only provide a shoebox full of goodies for Christmas to children ages 2-14 from over 100 different countries, but also begins a journey of discipleship in places where people may not know Christ.
The WACC collected 55 boxes which means our students provided 55 children with the opportunity to hear the message of the Gospel. We are so blessed with such generous & compassionate students and are thankful for all of those who participated!

Kierra, who is taking Fashion & Textiles this semester, saw a need, had an idea and enriched our school community this week. After a recent visit to the nurse, Kierra found that there were no heating pads available to students. She decided to create reusable bags that can be heated and used to reduce pain. Nurse Megan was thankful for this generous donation. Thanks, Kierra, for enriching the lives of others at WACC/WCHS!!!
Mr. Trent Long gave Mrs. Hopper's Radio and TV I students a tour of DePuy's television studio and control room. Students were able to learn a great deal about how to get started in the Broadcasting field as well as how they could find jobs utilizing their skills locally. DePuy graciously donated their SD equipment to Mrs. Hopper's class when they switched to an all HD studio. Her students are blessed to be using such high-quality professional equipment.
