High School Student Programs All About Careers Events

All About Careers! Workforce Training & Economic Development

For the first time, Barton is hosting a career program awareness event for superintendents, principals, counselors, students and/or family members to promote career opportunities associated with career and technical programs available at Barton Community College.  The kick-off event of this series is scheduled for Wednesday, September 24th, 2014. 

Come join us on campus for sessions about each of the following career programs:  Agriculture, Automotive, Computer-Aided Drafting, Early Childhood, Manufacturing Skills, and Natural Gas.


Instructor/Coordinators representative of each program will interact with guests in information sessions and tours of career and technical education facilities.

Registration opens at 9:15 am.  From there, you'll have career sessions, tours, lunch, and a scheduled Q&A with faculty and staff.  The event will conclude around noon.

More details are forthcoming via email and postcard invitations to superintendents, principals, counselors, students, and/or family members.
