WITC Welcomes High School Students For Career Day

Students Learned About Programs Such As Early Childhood Education, Auto Services and HVAC

SUPERIOR, Wis. – Hundreds of area high school students had an opportunity to experience a college environment.

Career day at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College (WITC) gave about 450 high school students a chance to start thinking about their future career goals.

“They’re actually operating things like when they’re doing welding, they’ll be hands on doing that. Same thing with gerontology, they’re working with people the entire time that they’re here. So I think that really separates, they really get a good look at what WITC has to offer,” said WITC Enrollment Services Manager Ben Mooney.

Students learned about the more than 60 programs WITC has to offer.

“There’s careers out there that they can be involved in and hopefully this program today really gives them a good idea of what they’ll have to do to get into that career and what day–to–day life is like in that career. Instead of what they might see on TV this is a real life experience they’re getting, they’re actually doing,” said Mooney.

WITC also allows class shadows, so students can sit in the classrooms and spend the day as a WITC student.
