Today an Education, Tomorrow a Career

Mayor Brian York signed a Proclamation on Thursday, February 8th designating February 11-17th as Career/Tech Week. Career/Technical Education provides Americans with a school-to-careers connection and is the backbone of a strong, well-educated workforce, which fosters productivity in business and industry and contributes to America's leadership in the international marketplace. Career/Technical Education offers individuals opportunities to learn new skills, which provides them with career choices and potential satisfaction.

The Talladega City School System begins exposing students to career choices through the Career Discoveries Program at Zora Ellis Junior High School. Dr. Trellys Riley, Director of Career/Tech stated, "All education is career education. At some point whether it is after a graduate degree, college, technical school or high school all students must be prepared for a career. In Career/Technical Education we teach students the application of the academics, how to make a living and be a contributing member of society."

Programs at the high school include: Business/Marketing, Family and Consumer Science, Health Science, Computer Electronics, Precision Machining, Welding, Automotive Service and Technology, Pre-Engineering, and Carpentry.

During the ceremony, THS students in the Career/Technical Education Program shared information about various clubs offered.
