Summer camp, college academy

Funded by a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation, Western Brown School District and Southern Hills Career and Technical Center collaborated to create the Summer Career and College Academy for incoming ninth graders at the career center. Forty students registered to participate in this enrichment opportunity.

These students are developing their career skills and learning information about careers that most interest them during the week of June 8-11. The four major career clusters were determined from the inventories the entire eighth grade class took last January. The top four clusters – Construction Technology, Criminal Justice, Clinical Health and Culinary Arts – will assist students to explore their interests further. During the week, the students focused upon building their skills with hands-on labs under the direct supervision and guidance of SHCTC career technical teachers. In addition, on Wednesday the students were to participate in a college program at the new Southern State Community College in Mt. Orab campus where UC Clermont and Chatfield College were to join with Southern State to offer students insights into life after high school. Following this college program, each career group will visit companies in the area that relate to their careers to see these careers “in action.”

“The difference between a Dream and a Goal is a PLAN”; with this theme, the students will be able to make informed choices about their lives and work. Career maturity, although a long-term goal, is begun with career exploration programs like this one that offers high school students opportunities for reflection.

On Thursday afternoon, their

Parents were invited to the closing ceremony Thursday, where students shared their experiences and projects produced over the four days.

This program required the administrations at Western Brown High School and Southern Hills Career and Technical Center collaborate to develop and implement this career readiness program.
