πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Guess what!!!! πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
Unlike a traditional two- or four-year colleges, trade schools specialize in degrees and certificates that get you out of the classroom and on the job faster. Trade schools give students on-the-job training in a specialty skill. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”§πŸ‘©β€πŸ­πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬These types of schools allow students to skip the unrelated general education classes and start classes that are specific to the skills they are looking to gain.

Meet Haley Mulholland. Haley was awarded our scholarship to attend West Virginia Junior College-bridgeport a few years ago.

When asked why Haley had decided to attend West Virginia Junior College, she replied: Since I could remember I’ve always wanted to attend college and become a Medical Assistant. I chose West Virginia Junior College because it was a fast pace program and in the matter of eighteen months, I will graduate with an associate degree. With that Associates Degree I could start my career as a Medical Assistant.

When asked how the Imagine America scholarship helped her, she replied: Receiving the high school scholarship has helped me financially throughout my college experience. Without the scholarship, I would have struggled with my tuition.

Have your students apply for our scholarship here: https://www.imagine-america.org/students/scholarships-education/highschoolscholarships/

Special thanks to Lewis County Schools for nominating Haley for the award!

SUCCESS STORY: Daniel LaChance - Porter and Chester Institute

Daniel LaChance says he has the greatest job he could ever ask for. Since graduating from Porter and Chester Institute with a degree in electrical technology, Daniel found work with a local energy company as a lineman apprentice.

He credits his education at Porter & Chester for this exciting employment opportunity: the training he received taught him about electrical theory and working with electricity, giving him the skills he needed to work in the field.

Daniel was awarded the Imagine America Foundation High School Scholarship Program to help with his tuition, making it more financially feasible to attend a post secondary program after high school.

Skilled trade careers ARE STEM careers.

According to a 2016 survey led by Exploring, a co-ed career development program, 150,000 6th through 12th graders were surveyed about their interest in more than 200 different career options. The data showed that 3 percent of the students said they were interested in β€œskilled trades.” But 45 percent of those same students said they were interested in β€œSTEM.” What we have here is a problem of perception!

Even though he was an online student, he wanted to experience walking across a stage to receive his degree. So, he and his wife traveled more than 3,000 miles to Virginia to do just that. β€œI did not take my studies very seriously in high school,” he says. β€œI worked hard to earn my degree and I wanted to reward myself with the full graduation experience, and I am so glad that I did. It was such a great feeling.”

Article on America's skills gap.

πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ America's Skills Gap Crisis - Companies may get hundreds or even thousands of applications for open positions but may find that they just aren’t seeing the skills they need reflected in those applicants.

This skills gap issue can be especially prevalent in high-change industries as technology, leaving skills acquired even just a few years ago suddenly outdated or obsolete.
