2018 Annual Apprenticeship Signing Ceremony 

Congratulations to Wilkes County's first apprentices!  Apprenticeship Wilkes hosted a signing ceremony in the Board Room honoring Kaitlyn Bell (InfusionPoints), Tate Foster (Gardner Glass), and Hannah M. Billings (InfusionPoints). Each of these students completed their pre-apprenticeship in the summer of 2018 & were offered a formal apprenticeship upon successful completion. 


These students will be learning valuable skills from both on the job training and courses with Wilkes Community College, specific to their trade. A big 'Thank You' to Wilkes Economic Development Corporation for sponsoring this event. 

 Mock Interviews and Resume Building 
Mrs. Gambill, WWHS Health Science teacher, teamed up with the Career Development Coordinator to give students a mock interview experience with the help of our local business partners.  Students learned about resume writing and interview skills prior to their mock interview. Students also practiced interview questions with the Career Development Coordinator prior to their mock interviews.  These students dressed to impress and came prepared with a copy of their resume when they sat for their individual interviews. 
We would like to give a special thanks to Dennis Huggins (WCS), Ashley Davis (NC Works), Devonne Gaddy (WCC), Tamika Parks (SECU), Jody Freeman (Gear UP) and Angela Ellis (WCS) for participating as interviewers!
As a result of this experience, students were able to receive valuable feedback from hiring managers and turn their jitters into confidence as they prepare for their futures!
These Wilkes Central High School students are dressed out in scrubs for their clinicals in Nursing Fundamentals.
