At 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, March 28, 2013, Governor Peter Shumlin will present eleven Williamstown Middle High School students with the Governor’s Career Ready Certificate in a ceremony at the State House. The students are the first high school students in the state to receive the certification.
The Morrisville Learning Center of the Community College of Vermont (CCV) graduated 11 from their Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) program on Thursday, March 21, 2013.
Everybody likes being first, and this week thirteen Williamstown Middle High School students had their chance at the prized spot.
“I don’t think in the beginning these students knew they were the pacesetters they are,” said Williamstown Middle High School teacher Sandy Fitzmorris. “But I think today they know they’ve made a real mark on education in Vermont.”
CCV has partnered with the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties to train Personal Care Attendants (PCA) to fill 150 new positions created through funding provided by a $93,500 grant from the Department of Labor and Workforce Education and Training Fund.
CCV’s workforce development efforts have been attracting attention in communities around the state and beyond.
