A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT TO THE COMMUNITY
 
Summer brings many changes to the Warren County Career Center!

I am very excited to serve as your new WCCC Superintendent, and to join the WCCC family. My first day, June 1, was the Adult Education Recognition Ceremony. What a great way to start my tenure, interacting with adult program completers and GED graduates and hearing how our school changed and improved their career paths.

The Career Center has a long history of providing workforce development training for students in Warren County and surrounding areas. I am pleased to begin to play a role in the growth of Warren County, as our district grows with its current building and renovation projects, expanding adult education programs, and increasing enrollment in high school courses.

In early June, we hosted around 120 rising eighth-graders for High Tech Career Camp for three days of career exploration. It was fun and inspiring to see them experience hands-on activities as they learned more about their interests and abilities.

Two years ago, WCCC formed a community-based facilities committee that studied district needs and made recommendations to the board for critical improvements and long-range planning. Among their recommendations were to build a fire training facility, expand the cafeteria kitchen, remodel space for a new Culinary training lab and restaurant, remodel the Digital Design lab, and remodel space for a new science lab.

Construction on the new WCCC Fire and Rescue Training Facility and Burn Tower has begun, and is scheduled for completion in September. Planning began five years ago on this first burn tower facility in Warren County. Currently, WCCC adult and high school firefighter students and all county fire departments must travel out of the county to rent facilities for required fire training for certification. The facilities committee favored this project due to the great need in the county, and that it will bring a return on investment in just a few years.

Renovation and construction have also begun on all of the other critical areas identified by the facilities committee and approved by our board. This is Phase I of the WCCC Facilities Master Plan. As we complete the work, we will look at the next steps we need to take in order to continue to prepare our students for tomorrow’s workforce.

August brings the start of high school classes with juniors reporting on Aug. 16, with seniors joining them on Aug. 17. Many adult full-time courses have September starts. We look forward to a productive summer, and fall is just around the corner!
