PHS Begins More Career Readiness Programs

Pittsburg, KS (Monday, January 6, 2014) – Beginning Tuesday, January 7, students will be given the opportunity to select from three more career sectors to gain certification.

Those certificate programs are culinary arts, cosmetology and emergency medical technician. These career opportunities are an addition to the five other sectors currently offered through partnership with Fort Scott Community College. Opportunities that existed prior to the new ones are carpentry, heating and air, masonry, welding and certified nurses assistant.

“It is great to be able to offer these courses to our students,” Superintendent Destry Brown said. “This is just a way we are continuing our mission to provide a student-centered learning environment through partnerships in our community.”

Philippe Accad, owner of Philippe’s, is a professionally trained chef from the Vieux Bois in Geneva, Switzerland. He will be teaching the culinary arts program.

There has been high interest in the culinary arts course, including students who were potentially going to quit school until they heard of this opportunity.

"By me teaching a class I am influencing students who otherwise would have quit. It’s amazing. It’s rewarding," Accad said. "All of a sudden I am teaching for a reason."

The new career pathways will follow the same two-year duration for completion as the other five.
