PTC recruiting students with meet-greet

Ada —  

Pontotoc Technology Center is currently recruiting high school students for the 2013-2014 school year and a meet-and-greet is slated next Monday to assist students. 

In January, over 500 sophomores toured the Pontotoc Technology Center campus to see what career majors are offered, officials said.

The following career majors are available to high school students: heavy equipment operator, health science, cosmetology, information technology, and automotive service technology. 

During the sophomore tours students experienced hands-on shadowing opportunities. The students were asked to choose the career major of their choice. They spent two hours in the career major performing hands-on activities. Once they shadowed the career majors, they were asked to fill out a short survey regarding their shadowing experience. When they turned in their completed survey, they were given a parting gift. The purpose of the shadowing experience is to help the students determine if they would like to attend PTC their junior year. 

High school students can attend PTC for three hours a day their junior and senior years. This enables high school students to either begin their career path early or to earn certifications that will allow them to seek better employment opportunities while they are in college.  PTC offers a career tech scholarship for students who are interested in attending PTC after graduation.

Most students who attend the shadowing experience respond with a positive remark, officials said. 

For students who will be a junior or senior in high school and attend Ada, Allen, Byng, Latta, Roff, Sasakwa, Stonewall, Tupelo, or Vanoss in August 2013 or if they are interested in becoming a student at PTC, a meet-and-greet night is slated Monday,  Feb. 25, from 4-7p.m. Students may take a tour of the school and meet the friendly staff at PTC.  For more information, call Jayma Newport at 580-310-2253 or jnewport@pontotoctech.edu.
