“Preparing Youth for Careers in the Mother Lode”

San Andreas – Local high school students are getting the inside scoop on current career opportunities in the Mother Lode through this year’s Career Technical Education (CTE) project presentations. The first of six CTE presentations, a seminar on Health Care Careers took place Wednesday, September 11 at Calaveras High School (CHS). Guest speakers were Mark Twain Medical Center’s Chief Nurse Executive and Vice President of Patient Care Services Katherine McCoy and (no relation) General Surgeon and Chief of Staff Dr. Andrew McCoy.





A combined total of 175 students attended the session. Bret Harte students were able to participate remotely via live stream technology purchased with funding from the Calaveras Community Foundation. Participants were able to use a QR code to submit questions that were displayed on a laptop for the presenters to answer.

Clayton Moore is a CHS junior who attended Wednesday’s presentation. “I think that it is a great idea for this to happen,” he said. “It helps kids that want a career in this field. The medical field sounds cool, I wouldn’t mind having a job in the medical field.”

Marian Airola, a senior at CHS, said, “The presentation today was very helpful and insightful. It was great to hear about the options and career choices; it was a real eye-opener and made it more of a reality.”

The selection of CTE topics for this year was a collaborative effort of the Calaveras County Office of Education (CCOE) and both high schools, which surveyed students to determine the local growth industries of greatest interest to students. The winners were Health Care; Agriculture and Natural Resources; Engineering and Maintenance; Manufacturing and Product Development; Energy, Construction and Utilities; and Business, Hospitality and Entrepreneurship.

Terri Tanner, Calaveras High School college and career counselor, stated, “Students are excited to know they have a say in what types of presentations CTE will provide this year.”

The effort to expand CTE opportunities for students is paying off, according to Brandon Price, dean of Career Technical Education and Economic Development at Columbia College. “Career and Technical Education is vital to meeting the workforce needs in our community,” said Price. “Enrollment is up at Columbia College this fall; this is largely credited to recent increases in the proportion of area high school graduates choosing to attend college and more students choosing Columbia. We proud of our strong partnerships with local employers which ensures we meet their need for skilled workers while providing students access to rewarding careers.”

The Health Care Career Presentation on Sept. 11 @ CHS can be watched on CCOE YouTube channel or at www.calaverascte.org on the podcasts page.

    Careers? Electrician, water treatment, plumber, engineers (any type take your pick), you know, things that require an education, but you don't need to go to a university for these careers. Come on man use your head. Any thing involving computers is a good bet, mechanics, especially diesel for large trucks and tractors, dental hygienist, legal secretary, finish carpenter,
    Don't tell me all you can think of is flipping burgers uh...cashier uh...waiter...uh ....gardner....uh....raking pine needles...me like working.....with...hands....not ....brains. Drink beer...smoke...weed...and me....work gooder wen....i be stoned.....and ....drunk...like that...no want head...two hurt....cause I think to hard

      These jobs are taken and half of them have no work here or going out of business. I would hire friends kids or family before anyone else.

    Um, I see where you are coming from. You're raised here no doubt, I'm sure you meant "their kids" too 😏 but hey, kids don't have to follow in their parents footsteps.

If you’re not born into a small local business, the only options for young entrepreneurs is opening restaurant- but the only REAL future lies in the wine and cannibus industries.

    Don't consume the wine or smoke the pot unless it is CERTIFIED ORGANIC, and grown in soils that are tested for heavy metals (including arsenic/mercury from mining,) and no synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers
