KCTCS kicks off Career Craze

Middle and high school students in Kentucky are invited to attend Career Craze, hands-on camps through the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS).

Lt. Governor Jer ry Abramson and KCTCS Chancellor Jay Box, as well as workforce partners from Maysville and Somerset, spoke at a press conference recently at Bluegrass Community and Technical College to kick off Career Craze.

“As honorary chair of this initiative, I’m thrilled to promote our community and technical college system and encourage students and their families to consider a technical career,” said Abramson. “Parents often overlook the great paying career opportunities that their children can access with a community college certificate or associate degree. This makes KCTCS’s Career Craze summer camp program even more valuable to our Kentucky families.”

All 16 KCTCS colleges will host two camps during the summer. The camps will highlight different business/ industry sectors such as utility, manufacturing, and healthcare. Students will learn more about each occupation and how it leads to high wage, high demand careers.

To learn more about Career Craze dates, times and locations, please contact a Workforce Solutions representative at a KCTCS college.
