Former WCHS Graduate Discusses Partnership with WCHS

Former WCHS graduate, Jeff Thatcher, CEI Manager at RK and K met with Stacy Woodhouse, Warren County Economic Development Director, Ernie Conner, Director of Technology/CTE, Derrick Fogg, CTE Coordinator and Odessa Perry, Career Development Coordinator to discuss ways to get students in the Engineering and Construction Technology Academy on the job training while still in high school. Mr. Thatcher is interested in students that can do inspections for the North Carolina Department of Transportation for highway and bridge construction. 

Mr. Thatcher has an opportunity to try the heavy equipment operation simulator during his visit. 

 The group discussed the huge need to skilled workers in this field. Hopefully we will be able to partner with his firm to provide hands on experience for our students.
