CCSD Celebrates Skilled Professions Signing Day
Cherokee High School students show their certificates at the annual Skilled Professions Signing Day event.
The Cherokee County School District is celebrating thirty-six graduating seniors who plan to pursue careers in skilled professions!
Be Pro Be Proud Georgia and the Cherokee Workforce Collaborative, an initiative of the Cherokee Office of Economic Development that includes CCSD, local businesses and industries and colleges, recently presented the annual Skilled Professions Signing Day event.
During the event, graduating CCSD seniors with plans for skilled professions careers signed those plans with employers or colleges and were celebrated by family, friends, teachers and community leaders.
“Congratulations to each of these students on making the choice to build a better future for our community through skilled professions,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “We’re proud of these students and grateful for our Career Pathways educators who have prepared them for this next step. Thank you to Be Pro Be Proud Georgia and the Cherokee Workforce Collaborative for your partnership and support of our students.”
The school district offers a wide catalog of Career Pathway programs at every high school. Career Pathway programs offer CCSD students opportunities to not only master specific job skills as well as soft skills helpful to all careers, but also to earn industry certifications.
