Spoon River College is hosting a Career and Technical Education College Visit Day on Tuesday, March 1, from 9:30-11 a.m. on the Canton Campus. It is open to high school students as well as non-traditional prospective students.

“We are excited to showcase some of our training programs which lead to high-skill, high-wages, and in-demand occupations,” said Brad O’Brien, dean of career and workforce education. “We expect these occupations to be among the drivers of an economic recovery.”

Programs to be featured include Agricultural Business Management, Commercial Driver Training, Computer Information Systems, Diesel and Power Systems Technology, Healthcare Career programs, Medical Laboratory Technician, Nursing, Rail Transportation and Power System Technology, and Welding.

Information about the application process, tuition, financial aid, and student life will also be presented. Attendees will also have the option to take a campus tour, including the Snapper Villas student housing, and will receive a free t-shirt.

This event is for people of all ages who are interested in learning about the career education programs at Spoon River College. High school students should inquire with their school about using a college visit day, and letters from the College confirming their attendance at the event will be provided to those students if needed.

Face coverings are required at Spoon River College for all students, staff, and visitors.

The Canton Campus is located at 23235 N County Hwy. 22.
