Southeast Tech Prep Newsletter- April 2023

April 2023

From the Chief Administrator:

Mid-April is upon us, and the countdown to the end of the school year has begun!  This is always a busy time of year in Tech Prep, as April is the month that we host our annual convening.  For 5 years, your Southeast Tech Prep Regional Center has hosted a SuccessBound Event.  This year we have rebranded that SuccessBound Conference to the KEY (Keep Engaging Youth) Workforce Summit.  In order for our students to be SuccessBound, and for our Communities and Workforce to be SuccessBound, we all must Keep Engaging our Youth to expose them to the countless opportunities they have.  This exposure will grow our students into successful, productive members of the Southeast Ohio workforce, and will upskill our current workforce to meet the needs of Ohio’s growing economy.

Please join us next Friday, April 21st at the Campus Center at Zane State College for this exciting event being brought to you through a partnership with the Tech Prep Southeast Regional Center, SuccessBound, AOP-20, Mid-East Career & Technology Centers, Zane State College, Ohio University-Zanesville, Ohio Means Jobs – Muskingum County, and Muskingum University.

This event is the perfect place to come together to help business and education achieve common ground while preparing a skilled workforce that is responsive to technological change and global competition.

The day will begin at 7:30 with a continental breakfast provided, and our presentations will start at 8:00 a.m..  Lunch will also be provided, and the day will conclude at 2:00 p.m.
