On Thursday, November 12, The Center for Workforce Development along with Outreach hosted a Career Technical Day Event. The event brought over 75 high school students and 16 high school counselors from 7 different schools to our campus. Students were excited to listen to the teachings of Dr. Tricia Rose. They enjoyed lunch hosted by Enrollment Services as they heard both faculty and students speak about Paralegal, CIPHER, Rock the School Bells, Youth Entrepreneurship Program, Career Advancement Academy and Retailing, Hospitality and Tourism.

The Skyline College Bookstore along with Cosmetology, Respiratory Therapy, Retailing, Hospitality & Tourism, Youth Entrepreneurship Programs, CIPHER, Energy and Career Advancement Academy donated items to the high school students.

High school students and counselors ended their day with tours of our Automotive, Cosmetology, Wellness, Child Development Center, Energy, Sterile Processing and Surgical Tech Departments.
