Connor’s Career Day

Connor Robinson’s Senior Project was held today in Castleford’s gym; it highlighted career and educational opportunities for students other than four-year degrees. Representatives from Amalgamated Sugar, Terry’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Top Gun Driving School, Coastline Equipment, and Aveda Institute attended, providing students with information on career and educational opportunities. Idaho State University sent representatives to offer information to students on technical programs at ISU, and the College of Southern Idaho included information on their Health Sciences, Human Services, and Technical Programs.

Castleford Welding Program

Cody Thorton, with the College of Southern Idaho welding program, delivered two welders to the Castleford agriculture education and FFA program. These welders were donated by the College and will be used in Castleford’s growing welding and fabrication courses. Students will use these machines to help them become better welders and to help prepare them for a career in the welding field.
