VENICE, Fla. – Last month, Rotary Futures College Resource Center took 43 Venice High School students on the annual “Career in a Year” trip to Suncoast Technical College.
Venice High School students were introduced to the many career programs available at Suncoast Technical College that can be completed in 13 months or less and the services the college provides to help individuals receive training for high-demand jobs. This trip is especially beneficial to those students who do not yet have a post-secondary education plan.
Led by program director Millie Wheeler and outreach specialist Kate Obendorf, students toured the facilities, spoke with instructors and learned about each program area.
The field trip was made possible by a $1,000 grant from the Venice Lions Club. Since 2015, the Venice Lions Club has sponsored this annual field trip so students can explore career education.
