On Tuesday, October 22nd, the sophomore class traveled to the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center or the CCCTC to learn in detail about each shop and class that is offered at the school. This trip allowed West Branch students to start making decisions about their future, which could start by enrolling at CCCTC. Many students from West Branch, as well as several other schools in the area, attend this school to get a jump-start on their future career choice. Students who go to CCCTC, learn in a hands-on way that students from traditional schools may not have the opportunity to participate in.

On Tuesday, the sophomores were divided into small groups and led by a student from the CCCTC around the building and through each shop. After looking at and evaluating several shops in the morning, the sophomores, chaperones, and teachers from the CCCTC ate lunch prepared by the students in the Culinary Arts and Food Management program. After a delicious lunch, the students finished touring the remaining shops and went back to West Branch.

Many sophomores from West Branch are interested in attending CCCTC next year and are excited to begin learning about and pursuing their personal interests at this school. At the CCCTC, there is a class for everyone. One student could be practicing CPR in the Health Occupations Technology program, while another could be working on a diesel engine in the Diesel Equipment Maintenance and Repair program. If you are interested in attending the CCCTC, talk with Mrs. Hubler in the guidance office.
