Mount Vernon, OH – Knox County Career Center Schools hosted their annual Advisory
Dinner on Thursday, October 6.
Advisory members for each lab are made up of local business professionals in their
respective fields associated with each career tech program at KCCC high school and Knox
Technical Center. Advisory members provide support and keep lab programs up to date with the
latest trends and equipment being used in each career field. They also assist in curriculum
decisions and making sure everything being taught is relevant to each career field.
KCCC hosted approximately 220 guests during the dinner. The Advisory Dinner took
place in the cafetorium at KCCC, following the meetings that were conducted in each high
school career tech lab where different aspects of industries were discussed. Advisory members,
lab instructors, and academic teachers were served a salad, taco bar buffet, and dessert
prepared by KCCC’s Culinary Arts program, under the direction of Chef Russo, Culinary Arts
instructor. A PowerPoint presentation was presented by administrators sharing the vision of
career tech and important data about the KCCC High School and Knox Technical Center.
These meetings with stakeholders also fulfill federal funding requirements.
“This is an important evening for us. Our business and industry partners join with us to
discuss important aspects of the career pathways we have at the high school and Knox
Technical Center. We appreciate their time and valuable expertise,” said Kathy Greenich, KCCC
