North Carolina Community College System President Peter Hans and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson have joined to proclaim the month of February “Career Pathways Month” in North Carolina.
The proclamation acknowledges the many great career paths that are available to North Carolina’s public school students. Johnson and Hans made the announcement at the North Wake College and Career Academy in Wake Forest. The school is a partnership between Wake Technical Community College and the Wake County Public School System.
“The path to a successful and fulfilling career is not just reserved for those with four years of college,” Johnson said. “Students have the opportunity to find a great career through apprenticeships, technical training, the military and a two-year associate degree, just to name a few.”
Johnson and Hans were joined by individuals representing the various career pathways available, including nursing students, technicians, instructors and members of the military.
“North Carolina’s community colleges are dedicated to helping students obtain the necessary skills and education that are in demand today by employers,” Hans said. “In working closely with North Carolina’s public schools, we can help them get on the path to a great career.”
