WKCTC planning 2 career camps

Staff report

Middle and high school students can learn about careers in health care and energy at West Kentucky Community & Technical College beginning in June.

The two free, hands-on Career Craze camps are for students 12 to 15. "So You Want to Work in Healthcare" will be June 9-12 in room W-107 of the Allied Health Building. Students will learn about programs including nursing, physical therapy, surgical technology, dental hygiene/assisting and phlebotomy.

Margaret Johnson and Laura Durbin, WKCTC assistant professors of nursing, will lead the health care camp. WKCTC physical therapy assistant students and area health care professionals will share their experiences.

Mark Westerfield, WKCTC air conditioning technology coordinator, will teach "Exploring Energy and Alternative Energy Careers" June 16-19 in room 216 of the Emerging Technology Center.

Students will tour two energy plants and learn how electric energy is produced.

Campers will visit a local utility to learn how the electric grid works and how electricity gets to homes. Students will learn from hands-on activities on how a generator works, explore wind and solar energy and careers in the energy industry.

Each camp will be 8 a.m. to noon Monday to Thursday. College representatives will also be available on Thursday during both camps to answer questions about their next step after high school.

To register call the college at 270-534-3335. For more information about the Career Craze camps, contact Kevin O'Neill, WKCTC continuing education coordinator, at 270-534-3206.
