Knox High School opens brand new Career Center for Starke and Marshall County students
KNOX, Ind. -- Knox Community Schools opened its brand-new Career Center right on the high school's campus on January 4th of this year.
The facility is the first of its kind in the area and hosts students from Knox Community Schools, Oregon Davis School Corporation, Culver Community Schools and North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation.
The $3.5 million, state of the art facility was built without raising any community taxes for Knox neighbors.
It offers everything from an agriculture lab with a greenhouse, a welding lab, classrooms for robotics and other subjects, as well as offices and a reception area.
Students are able to receive dual credit from Ivy Tech for certain courses completed. The center also helps students get into internships, that would hopefully lead to jobs after graduation.
Knox Community Schools Superintendent, Dr. William Reichhart, also shared that the school plans to add more programs to the Career Center, including a Cybersecurity program in the future.
