I initially joined the Career Center’s Manufacturing program because it was a STEM academy engineering class requirement. After just a couple of weeks I learned I really like manufacturing and loved the class. At the Career Center I learned not to doubt myself and to have confidence when doing something. I have been able to narrow my goals down to a small list of things and be more specific in what I want to major in at college.
The instructor has had such a huge impact on me. I find myself almost every day going home and talking with my parents about manufacturing and all I have learned from him. If I were giving advice to a younger student, I would tell that student not to be nervous about the idea of taking a Career Center class. I would tell them to explore as many career possibilities as they can before they leave high school.
