MUSKEGON: To help teens get more out of their high school experience, the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center is hosting Connect with Tech Night on Wednesday, January 24 from 5–7 p.m. at their campus located at 200 Harvey Street in Muskegon. Teens are encouraged to connect with one of the 15 career-related programs that matches their college and/or career interests.
Students of all ages, and their families, are invited to explore careers in healthcare, engineering, criminal justice, graphic arts, culinary, veterinary sciences, and more. While they are here, they can meet instructors and current students, take part in hands-on demonstrations, talk to local manufacturing employers, college and armed forces representatives, and enter to win an iPad Mini. Current sophomores and juniors can even fill out 2018/19 registration forms on-site.
“Last year was our first year hosting Connect With Tech, and 39 students filled out enrollment forms for 2017/18. I’m excited to see how those numbers grow this year,” said Student Outreach Specialist Stephanie Hoekenga.
“This is my second year at the Career Tech Center,” shared Environmental/Veterinary Sciences student Kerrigan Semans (Whitehall). “I enrolled here to further my education in animal care and because it’s an environment that’s focused on what I want to do after high school.”
