Secondary teachers, school counselors, co-op coordinators and administrators attended Friday’s College & Career Readiness Conference at Penn College. Among the highlights was a presentation by Hans Meeder, president of the National Center for College and Career Transitions, who detailed how alliances of business, community and education can develop career pathways for students. The twice-yearly event, coordinated by the College Transitions Office, also included breakout discussions, tours and “Have You Ever …?” hands-on demonstrations in a variety of majors.
