Local High School Students Visit Snow Campus for CTE Days


March 5, 2024–EPHRAIM, UT – High school students from across Snow College’s six-county service region recently participated in a series of Career and Technical Education Days. 

Designed to connect students with technical training options that lead to in-demand careers, students spent the day in hands-on learning workshops led by Snow College instructors.

In the months leading up to the workshops, Snow personnel met with high school counselors, teachers, and CTE directors to coordinate each detail. Becky Callister, Snow College Career and technical Education Director, said, “As we planned each workshop, our focus was on quality rather than quantity. While we knew we could fill a bus with students, we limited the number of attendees to make sure each student could get the most of the event.” Students were invited based on their areas of interest and the CTE courses they’ve taken during high school. Five different workshops were held, focusing on the following areas:

  • Manufacturing Day: Composites, Welding, HVAC, Machining, Industrial Mechanics and Student Recruitment
  • Health Professions Day: Nursing Assistant, Medical Assisting, EMT and Nursing.
  • Business Day: Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Business Grit, Finance and Sales
  • Construction and Design Day: Architectural Drafting, CAD/3D Modeling, CNC Fabrication, Finish Carpentry and Recruitment.
  • Transportation Day: Automotive, Diesel

Each of the five events saw breakout sessions, rotations to expose students to different programs within the department, hands-on activities, lunch, and drawings. Students, teachers, and counselors alike were pleased with the day and left feeling like they learned more about each given field and opportunities available to them. Based on the feedback received, the college plans to make these workshops an annual event.
