Joliet Central High School Getting a Friday Visit from “Assoc for Career and Tech Ed”

Joliet Central High School students will be having some visitors this Friday morning.

The Association for Career and Technical Education is visting six different northeastern Illinois establishments this week. One of them, Friday morning starting right around 7:30 AM, will be Joliet Central High School. The Joliet Township High School District is an avid user of Association for Career and Technical Education strategies. Their national office is in Alexandria, Virginia. But JTHS Curriculum Director for Career and Technical Education DeDe Woodard is a former president of Illinois’ chapter of the association. She says, the district’s Career Academy structure, where students choose an area of interest for their studies, is a big part of this mission.

One of the visitors Friday will be Jared Nagurka from the Association for Career and Technical Education’s national office. He says, this is all part of getting students on the right path for adulthood.

Current Illinois association president Cindy Stover says what she’s really looking forward to Friday morning is talking with the youngsters.

Other places being visited by the Association for Career and Technical Education on this tour will be Maine Township, Lyons Township, and Rolling Meadows High Schools, Harper College, and Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center. I’m Steve Brandy, 1340, WJOL News.
