SEATech Health Sciences students continue to shine
SEATech Health Sciences students volunteered to work at the Christian Aid Center this week. The students made a spaghetti dinner and served over 90 for dinner. Tuesday, SEATech Health Sciences students hosted an all day competition. Students competed in activities aimed to help them be successful in the state written exam and performed skills with second year nursing students from Walla Walla Community College.
“I am so impressed with these students,” said Instructor Sandy Thomas, RN. “It is a great group of students with dedication and enthusiasm.”
Friday, October 26, 2018, SEATech students in Eric Matson’s Construction Technology class participated in a groundbreaking ceremony for a new Habitat for Humanity home being built on Carrie Ave. SEATech students will be involved in most all aspects of construction from start to finish.
Students in the SEATech Construction Technology course learn blueprint reading, carpentry, electrical systems, masonry and plumbing. Students also research and design both renewable and nonrenewable energy sources. Students in the program are eligible to earn college credits and/or industry certification.
Last week several Walla Walla Valley businesses and agencies participated in the Walla Walla High School Career and College Fair. These community leaders interacted with students to explain their business and discuss pathways for becoming a business owner.
College and Career Coordinator Katharine Curles organized the event. She says it’s important to link students with more business and industry leaders. This provides opportunities for students to make connections as they transition from high school to their future plans, including the military, industry, apprenticeships and college.
SEATech’s Health Career/Pre-Nursing students volunteered at the Walla Walla Christian Aid Center on January 31st, 2018. The Pre- Nursing class prepared spaghetti, salad and garlic bread. Students washed pots and pans and served at least 100 people in our community. Pre-Nursing students also enjoy getting together and serving our community. This event was one of many to come. What a great bunch of students!
