About 30 members of the SSCS sophomore class joined dozens of other students from the region on Jan. 19 to learn about a variety of careers they may choose to prepare for next school year at the Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical Education Center – Schoharie Campus.

The SSCS 10th graders joined students from Middleburgh, Schalmont and Berne-Knox-Westerlo school districts for an afternoon of touring the Schoharie CTE Campus, meeting current students and faculty and gaining insight into the benefits of a career and technical education.

Some of the interested students were looking to explore career options while others already know what they want to do and want the competitive edge as they looked at the various programs ranging from culinary to heavy equipment to cosmetology offered at the campus.

In one classroom, prospective students tried their hands at hairstyling while in another classroom prospective learned about auto mechanics. Others aspiring CTE student learned about the Heavy Equipment Maintenance and Repair program, while others met with faculty and students in the Criminal Justice, two-year sequence of Health Careers, Culinary Arts and Building Trades programs.
