Wednesday was graduation night for adult career center students at the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center.
More than 100 students received their certifications in fields like business and industry, public safety, and trade and industry. The coordinator for health careers said of the 35 students in the health occupations program, 16 have jobs.
“Our certifications are national certification, so once the student graduates and has that certification, they can go anywhere in the United States and get a job,” said Health Careers Coordinator Joann Sulenski.
“Possibilities are work in a physicians office, you can work up front answering phones, making appointments. You can work in the back, that would be taking vitals, height, weight, blood pressure,” said medical assistant graduate Mallory Zimmerman.
Fifty-seven students also received their GED certification at Wednesday’s ceremony.
