MOSES LAKE (VIDEO) – Hundreds of Moses Lake High School juniors got an up close look at many of the professional and technical education programs offered at Big Bend Community College.
The two school teamed up for the first “Prof-Tech” Preview Day on Wednesday, designed to introduce Moses Lake students to Big Bend’s programs.
“Because BBCC is in Moses Lake High School’s backyard, many of the local students often overlook the college as an option post-graduation,” said Monica Medrano, Workforce Education Services coordinator and event organizer. “The BBCC Prof-Tech Preview Day planning committee, and (high school) faculty and staff, felt it was important to bring the junior class to campus in order to help students see first-hand what Big Bend has to offer.”
The students toured the campus to get a first-hand look at Big Bend’s professional and education programs, including the Medical Simulation Lab, the Unmanned Aerial Systems, or drones, program, and a look at the college’s aircrafts.
Officials with local and regional employers, along with area colleges and universities, were also on hand.
