CTE Fair provides career opportunites

Posted Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 8:23pm

The career and technical education programs at the college were on full display Wednesday, Dec. 1. Between 300 to 350 high school students visited campus to learn more about career and technical education. The CTE fair provided an opportunity for students to gather information about opportunities in nursing, criminal justice, engineering, welding, automotive & diesel mechanics, cosmetology, trucking, building construction, machining, drafting, business, and information systems.

High school juniors and seniors from San Juan, Grand, Emery, Duchesne and Carbon counties listened to presentations, watched demonstrations from USU-CEU faculty members, and visited shops to look at equipment and facilities. A key goal of the event was to help students learn about career opportunities and understand the steps they can take now to prepare for future careers. Russell Goodrich expressed thanks to faculty members, high school CTE directors and high school counselors for their great support. He also recognized Betty Hassell, the pathways coordinator, for the hours she and Amanda Alderson spent planning and organizing the event. The CTE fair is a great USU-CEU tradition and a fun opportunity for high school students to meet and learn from experts at the college.
