Student Outreach and Recruitment

Tuesday, June 1
Tour, South Campus, 3 p.m.

A special thank you from the Outreach & Recruitment office.
This year, we served more than 350 students as part of the Educational Shadow program funded through WorkForce Central. Outreach would like to extend a thank you to each of the instructors, listed below, for participating and representing their program and the college professionally.

Culinary Arts chefs Roger Knapp and Michael Clark and their students graciously served each one of these students and their advisors delicious meals. Bob Traufler, career specialist, stepped in a few times to help out when coverage was needed, and it was much appreciated.

Thank you to each of the participating instructors for helping make these types of events successful.

Comments from students about their Educational Shadow experience:
"I liked the hands on learning, the way the teachers taught, I enjoyed seeing all of the different components on the motors, I loved how they do things in the classrooms, and the shops, I really enjoyed this visit here and definitely would like to come back."

"I like all of it. It was well organized... I like the people they were so nice."

"The experience was helpful and it showed me options of things to do after high school."

"I liked getting to talk to the students because they seemed so passionate about what they were doing. I liked getting to do interacting activities. I liked getting to eat lunch with Culinary Arts and hearing the speech at the end."

"I liked how you got the chance to get a glimpse of actual classroom time and how you get to study and the materials you use to do so."

"I liked how hands-on everything was...I really enjoyed the atmosphere."
