Students in the district’s pre-apprenticeship program were welcomed on a site visit to Big C Industries in Longview.
Big C Industries General Manager, Matt Montgomery, helped develop the pre-apprenticeship program and continues to support students through experiential learning.
Work site visits benefit students by giving them the chance to see the same technology and equipment they are using in the pre-apprenticeship program in use in the workplace. District Director of Career & College Readiness Jill Diehl said, “It gives students validation that the things they are working on are applicable in the real world.”
Diehl went on to say, “We hope students discover relevance, relevance to what they are learning in the classroom, to the standards we are teaching them and the professional and technical skills. Students are going to see this is what I’m learning in school and this where it will take me in the future.”
