On behalf of the Warren County Tech Center faculty and staff I would like to welcome you to our campus. We are committed the success of all students and will work to ensure you receive the preparation necessary to be successful in your chosen career path. We focus on career readiness while preparing you for a seamless transition into a post-secondary institution or a career setting. You will obtain “real world” skill sets in your program area that prepare you for the demands of today’s workforce. Warren County is a “Work Ready” community and in an effort to contribute to the initiative, we provide the Work Keys assessment for all seniors. In addition, national industry certification is offered in each of our program areas. We have multiple partnerships with local business and industry and we will provide field trips to tour these facilities so you can meet your future employers. These employers encourage continued education and support a work schedule that offers the opportunity to continue in your career pathway at a two or four year institution. You will earn dual credit with the Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College in most of our programs areas. It is common for our students to leave our facility with over 12 college credits. We have articulated credit with the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College in the Construction Program. The Council for Postsecondary Education reported that individuals who earn a two year degree will earn over $300,000.00 more over the course of a career than individuals who enter the workforce with a high school diploma only. It is our commitment to ensure that every student who enrolls in our programs have every opportunity to transition to a two year institution or are placed in the workforce with the option to continue their education while they work.
We are filled with excitement about this year and all of the great things we have planned. Welcome back and welcome to the Warren County Tech Center!
Dr. Eric T. Keeling, Principal
