Career Signing Day is coming soon for Frederick County Public Schools’ Career and Technology Center (CTC) seniors and students completing Youth Apprenticeships! Athletes are no longer the only students who gather to sign letters of intent as classmates cheer them on. This year, high school seniors completing intensive CTC programs or apprenticeships and their future employers will gather Thursday, May 2 at 8:30 a.m. in the Frederick Community College JBK Theater for Career Signing Day.
“We’re extremely proud of these students’ achievements and appreciate the business partnerships that have helped prepare them to enter the workforce and continue their career training,” says Dr. Kristine Pearl, FCPS Career and Technology Education supervisor. “These students have made the most of their time in high school, many earning industry certifications and college credits in two- and three-year career-preparatory programs. They have secured their futures earlier than many of their peers. Their focus and determination are commendable.”
The Frederick County Career and Technology Education Advisory Council sponsors the celebration. More than 20 students and employers will sign letters of intent, with family and others present to support them. Some of the participating employers are Alban Tractor, All Around Plumbing, Auto Clinic International, Frederick Motor Company, Modern Auto Body, Tool in Hand Automotive, Bopat Electric, EDCO, M and M Welding, Dynamic Automotive, Ben Lewis Plumbing, and Frederick Memorial Hospital.
Students participating in the signing are Jordan Duncan, Brett Falkenstein, Michael Fout, Chad Gerrie, Logan Hall, Payton Hornig, Nicholas Kahler, Brandon Long, Garrett Manahan, Drew McKeown, Kyle Ray, Nathan Schwartzback, Robbie Taylor, John Umberger, Brandon Whitworth, Matt Williams, Dalton Wine, Devin Wine and Chase Yingling.
