On Thursday, May 19, the Career Advancement Academy (CAA), hosted its end of the semester celebration. Current CAA students mingled with faculty, program staff, and students from previous cohorts to acknowledge and celebrate students’ hard work during this and past semesters.
We were delighted to see familiar faces and celebrate the accomplishments of our current and former students. We also had the opportunity to recognize the CAA students who will be participating in the Skyline College Commencement ceremony and donning their CAA sashes: Utopia Hammond and Nicholas Zuniga, Allied Health, Michelle Hembry and Nikki McLaughlin, Legal Careers, and Roy Richards, Automotive Technology. Congratulations to them—and to all of our Career Advancement Academy students—on making it to the final stretch!
The Career Advancement Academy creates bridges to higher-wage careers and additional opportunities in higher education by integrating career and technical training, basic skills courses, and support systems. Currently, the Skyline College CAA has programs in Allied Health, Automotive, Education, Biotechnology, and Legal Careers.
