LC State sets NC3 National Signing Day for CTE students

LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewis-Clark State College’s School of Career & Technical Education will hold its first NC3 National Letter of Intent Signing Day on April 20 at 10 a.m. The event will be held at the college’s Williams Conference Center and will also be live streamed. This event is to welcome new and prospective career and technical education (CTE) students who plan to enroll at LC State next fall and major in one of the college’s 21 CTE programs.

The event is part of the NC3 Leadership Schools National Signing Day. LC State is an NC3 Leadership School member. NC3 was established to help connect employers with educational institutions to prepare industry-ready employees, both now and in the future. NC3 builds this employer-educational institution partnership through certifications built on national-skill standards by using effective teaching and training to prepare students for employment opportunities.

This national event sponsored by the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) mirrors the NCAA’s National Signing Day for athletes who commit to play sports in college. It is designed to honor students who are entering a technical field and to celebrate the dignity of work.

Students interested in participating in the National Letter of Intent Signing Day at LC State are asked to pre-register online for the event (deadline is March 22). LC State has CTE programs in auto mechanics technology, CNC machining, collision repair, diesel technology, engineering technology, fire service technology, heating, ventilation, air conditioning & refrigeration, industrial electronics, industrial millwright & maintenance technology, information technology, welding, administrative medical assisting, early childhood development, graphic communications, hospitality management, legal practice assistant, medical assistant, packaging design, paralegal, applied accounting, and web design & development.
