What's Right at NHS!
What's right at NHS 3
What can the typical 18 year old possess that will make her attractive to a prospective employer for a job that pays more than minimum wage? Unless they have a skill or a certification…probably not much. Recently I had the privilege of visiting with a recent NHS graduate who has already begun their career at a pay rate more than double the minimum wage. There is no secret to this student's success; they have a skill that few people possess. The fact that they accomplished this at such a young age serves as a reminder that it’s possible to succeed despite a sluggish economy. Many high school students don't realize that employers need a compelling reason to pay an employee well. The employee needs to possess some skill, certification, or degree that adds value to the potential employer and their business. (I would also add the employee must be able to show up on time, speak appropriately, and dress appropriately.) While many NHS students are preparing for college, which is admirable, other students have figured out that our career and technical programs at NHS offer a fast track to a rewarding career. There are numerous opportunities available at little or no cost to students courtesy of USD 373 taxpayers. Our challenge at NHS is to help students find the program that will meet their needs and give them an opportunity to earn a living doing something they enjoy. Our staff works diligently at getting to know students and their interests in order to advise students effectively. Our hope is that every student will have a goal in addition to obtaining their high school diploma: a technical certificate, preparation for college, or even a combination of technical skills and a post-secondary degree. We offer career and technical training in the following areas:
We continue to be grateful to our patrons and taxpayers for their assistance in supporting our efforts to provide quality opportunities for NHS students, adult learners, and area high school students who choose to take courses at our campus.
