Centralia High School Students Attend Career Day at Crisp Technology Center

June 6, 2019

On April 12, Kaskaskia College hosted a Career Day for the programs offered at the Harry L. Crisp Technology Center. These programs include Automotive Technology, Carpentry, Industrial Electricity, Drafting/Construction Project Management, Residential/Commercial Electricity, Heating/Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), Welding and Truck Driving.

Students from area secondary schools in the college district were invited to attend the Crisp Technology Career Day, which was a wonderful opportunity for students to obtain information to assist them in making career choices as they begin to prepare for their college education. With the growing shortage in the Career and Technical Education fields, this was a valuable opportunity for students to learn about the various job opportunities available upon graduating with a two-year degrees along with job salaries in the industry.

Included in the Career Day was a tour and program demonstrations with the following instructors providing demonstrations: Charles Debernardi, Automotive Technology, Corey Wellen, Welding; Pete Donnelly, Carpentry; Rob Jervis, Drafting/Construction Project Management; Lyle Gross, Industrial Technology and Robotics, Mark Littiken, Residential/Commercial Electricity, and Mark Kohnen, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC).

Approximately 222 high school students were in attendance and schools who attended were: Breese Central, Carlyle High School, Centralia High School, Mater Dei High School, Nashville High School, Odin High School, Okawville High School, and St. Elmo High School.
