Women Encouraged Toward Engineering

  • Published in Spotlight

At Wa-Hi this week, 36 women students attended the Women in Engineering career exploration event. Guest speakers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Key Technology and WWCC shared why engineering studies and careers are good choices for women. Students were encouraged to take courses in science and math in high school and when the going gets tough in college classes, stay the course - the rewards are worth it!  Women are in high demand in the engineering workforce and currently only make up 20% of all engineers nationally. Engineering careers provide flexibility, high income earning potential, work that helps people and job opportunities around the globe.

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!
