Braving high winds and blowing dust, on Tuesday, Oct. 26 the Rolling Plains Technical School students attended the World of Work (WOW) Conference at the Abilene Convention Center.
Approximately 2000 students from 40 Big Country schools attended. The event was a great opportunity for students to build career readiness.
The RPTS students were able to hear motivational speakers and check out job opportunities available in the Big Country. Companies, businesses, military, technical schools, and colleges were there as well to recruit students. RPTS students were also “presenters” for the conference.
RPTS Nursing students, led by Instructor Katherine Shannon, had a booth set up and took vitals and were able to share medical skills and tell others about opportunities in the medical field. The RPTS Welding/Construction students led by Dallas Willis and Monty Moeller were able to share skills in welding and cutting metal with hundreds of students.
A nail driving competition was another activity that the RPTS students made available to those in attendance. It was a great opportunity for the RPTS students to learn about career opportunities and to share skills that they have learned at the Rochester campus.
