NCCS Student Advisory Visits Manufacturing Solutions Center

Each year, young leaders from elementary, middle, and high school are selected by their teachers and administrators to participate in the NCCS Student Advisory.  Unlike a traditional advisory, students learn about leadership, collaboration, and applying their own knowledge and talents to solving real-world problems.  This year, students in advisory will be working together to plan an upcoming NCCS event that will be unveiled this spring.

As part of the experience, students will be visiting local businesses and industries in order to learn more about what it takes to be college and career ready.  Congratulations to our 2015-16 student advisory members!advisory2
