Picking a career path isn’t always easy, but for some Onslow County students, it starts with picking classes.
1,900 eighth grade students attended the 15th annual Career and Tech Education Showcase.
The event shows the many opportunities have to choose from when it comes to selecting classes for the new school year.
“Sometimes they are not aware of the many programs that we have and the career opportunities and the connections our programs make,” said Madeline Tucker, curriculum and instructional management coordinator.
About 90 career tech programs are offered in Onslow County schools.
The goal is for incoming freshmen to leave with an idea of what classes they’d like to choose for the upcoming school year.
8th-grade students have until late April to decide what classes they will choose as they head into high school.
