March is Women in the Trades Month. To celebrate, we will be featuring the hard work of the young women who are enrolled in or have graduated from our Career & Technical Education programs and who are changing the face of the skilled trades.
We celebrate and applaud women in the skilled trades well beyond the month of March but are using this time to encourage even more young women to consider non-traditional career paths by showcasing current female students and successful female graduates this month.
