Vocational Field Trip - WNCC

Four-Year Schools are not for everyone!
On Monday, November 14th, Mrs. Hinrichs took a group of 18 students to visit the various campuses of WNCC.  The group started at the Alliance Campus with Robyn Iossi, where they were able to see the nursing facilities and visit with faculty.  From there, the students went to the Powerline Program, which is located outside of Alliance.  Students were able to go up in the bucket trucks and try their hands (or feet!) at climbing a power pole.  Dr. John Corum provided some information regarding job placement for students who complete either the 12 or 15-month programs.  It was cold and blustery but fun!

Students then travelled to Scottsbluff and had lunch in the cafeteria at the main Scottsbluff campus of WNCC.  Bambi Sell (Admissions Representative) gave tour of the Applied Technologies Areas (Auto Body, Auto Shop and Welding), following by the more traditional programs such as Business, Information Technology, Fine Arts, etc.  The group was able to see the new dorm facility (Conestoga Hall) and finished up with a presentation on the process for continuing their education.
