Over 130 local students received awards to continue their education
February 21, 2023 – Richfield, UT – Central Utah Regional high schools recently visited Snow College for Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathway Completers Day. More than 130 seniors from 10 different high schools attended the event on the Richfield Snow College campus. These students each have completed or are completing one or more of 24 different high school CTE pathways. They were invited to Snow to visit the technology programs that are available at the college.
Seniors from regional high schools were invited to campus to meet college faculty, visit labs, meet with industry partners, and participate in hands-on activities in multiple program areas. Students were awarded a $500 scholarship to be applied to the Snow College Technical Education program of their choice. Snow awarded over $73,000 in scholarship funding for students interested in these Technical Education programs.
Programs of focus from Snow College included Agricultural Technology, Automotive Technology, Composites, Construction Technology and Management, Diesel Technology, Industrial Mechanics, Machine Tool Technology, Welding Technology, Computer Information Systems Networking and Cybersecurity, Business Digital Marketing, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Medical Assisting. Each program area has been identified as a growing industry in the Central Utah Region. These Technical Education programs now offer lower tuition rates, college credit, and short-term certificates.
Industry representatives from Sunroc, Wolverine Fuels, Jensen Air & Refrigeration, and Associated General Contractors of Utah were also on-hand to meet with students.
In partnership and support of the Pathway Completer Day, Sunrock provided an additional $500 scholarship to a Diesel Mechanics Pathway participant, which was awarded to Tanner Troseth from South Sevier.
Follow-up will be done in each high school in partnership with Snow College. School counselors and teachers will work with students to identify the program they want to attend. Advisors from the Snow College Student Success office will then meet with students and register them for summer or fall classes.
