Shelton State Pilot Program Offers Summer Technology Exploration
Tuscaloosa – Shelton State Community College is hosting a pilot program during July 2006 that offers area high school students an opportunity to explore career options in four different technology programs.

            Dr. Rick Rogers, president of Shelton State Community College, encouraged technical division associate dean Steve Fair to develop the pilot program.  Technical instructors Jason Moore, James Logan, Kenneth Blackwell and Ronnie Guy created “Exploring Technology” which brings 60 area high school students to the campus for a two week intensive exposure to technical areas.

            “We are constantly evaluating our efforts to reach high schools students prior to their graduation,” said Dr. Rogers.  “This pilot program was an exceptional opportunity to involve students in some of the most exciting technical fields at an earlier point in their education.”

The college experience will give participants with a hands-on introduction to diverse career possibilities, enable them to better identify their career aspirations and help them understand the educational opportunities available to them.

 “Economic development in West Alabama over the last decade has resulted in industry requiring an increased number of manufacturing workers with a higher level of technical skills. This change in workforce conditions has provided Shelton State Community College with an opportunity to find new ways to meet the challenge demanded by local industry,” said Susan Miller, Director of the West Alabama Workforce Development Center.

Participating students choose an area that interests them from the four programs offered in the pilot project. Technical programs targeted for the project include: machine tool technology and computerized numerical control, industrial electronics, welding technology, and air conditioning and refrigeration. The student stays in that program for the entire two weeks observing and participating in class and lab activities. The main focus of the course is to offer all students a hands-on experience and to furnish them with as much information as possible about their educational and career opportunities.

"Our students are indeed fortunate to be able to participate in this unique program than combines the opportunity to experience Shelton State's excellent technical programs and earn college credit at the same time," said John Merrill, Director of Public Relations for the Tuscaloosa County School System.

“Exploring Technology” was open to students in the Tuscaloosa County, Tuscaloosa City and Hale County school systems.  In addition to receiving one hour of college credit, participants are paid a daily stipend.
