The Walker Talker
Walker Career Center weekly update - December 11, 2020
Trip Down Memory Lane
This past week, we have been blessed in The Threshold to have Vincent (Bus Driver #92) assisting us in the Culinary Arts classroom. It turns out, Vincent is a 2006 graduate of Walker Career Center where he was in our Culinary Arts program and also competed for Walker Career Center in the SkillsUSA competition. Welcome Home Vincent!
Adding on some extra layers for the winter season!
Students in Culinary Arts assisted the WCC Office Staff this week in adding layers to our body for winter warmth as they prepared a wide variety of holiday cookies. From what I heard, they were delicious.......
House 30 Update
Thank you to Mr. Everett and his Construction Trades students for providing the office staff with a tour of the newly framed House 30.
Auto Service Tech I continues to build partnership with Tom Wood Ford
Special thank you to Tom Wood Ford for donating a 2013 Ford Focus to the Auto Service Tech program. Tom Wood has been an amazing asset to our AST program over the past few years thanks to Walker alum, Rob Jarels (Tom Wood Shop Supervisor). Students in the AST program are able to begin taking FORD certification courses that will transfer to Parkland College as part of the Ford Asset program after being sponsored by a Ford Dealership.
