The Biloxi High School Career Technology Center held its annual Craft Committee Dinner/Meeting at the Indian Reservation Café on Thursday, Nov. 10.
The Craft Committee is composed of business, industry, and community leaders, along with the Biloxi High School Career Technology Center’s teachers.
The Biloxi High Career Center’s Craft Committee functions as a means of establishing a competitive curriculum for the different programs and its ultimate goal is to produce students with the necessary skills to bridge the gap from school to the world of work and college.
Career and technical teachers working in coordination with business and industry leaders has provided valuable input and insight concerning the necessary skills for students employed by many of the Craft Committee business and industry members.
Dr. Glenn Dedeaux opened the meeting by presenting the clusters that the State Department has recognized as the "Pathways to Success." The Pathways to Success Clusters were developed through the National Career Pathways that are aimed at affording every student the opportunity to explore and choose different career options. The Pathway to Success focus is for every student to explore career options starting in the eighth grade.
Dedeaux also thanked sponsors for their role in the success of Biloxi High Career Center’s students and this year’s Craft Committee Event. Among those recognized were Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill, Bath Junkie, Biloxi Regional Medical Center, Classy Chassis Car Wash, Gulf Coast Business Supply, IP Casino Resort Spa, Palace Casino, Mary Mahoney’s Old French House, Nevada Bob’s Golf and Value Tool Product.
