Cowley industry tours held on main campus
Area high school students recently had an opportunity to tour Cowley College’s Career and Technical Education programs as part of Cowley industry tours with the Cowley County Economic Development Department, also referred to as Cowley First.
Joe Clasen, Cowley College Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department Chair, said several local business owners were also brought in to discuss what opportunities are available to the students.
“We have had very good success with bringing students into our programs from local high schools,” Clasen said. “What has been a great thing for us is that the CTE programs have become very visible in the past few years.”
Students from the following high schools took part in the Cowley industry tours: Arkansas City, Belle Plaine, Cedar Vale, Central Burden, Dexter, and Winfield.
