Counselor Connection at South Campus

The South Campus shared counselors invited local area high school counselors to the first Counselor Connection event. The high school counselors were given information about applying to the College, testing information, and some of the most successful technical career training programs offered at all three campuses. After the presentation, the counselors were taken on a campus tour to see different classrooms and labs around campus, including those in the academic building, technical building, and the new science and allied health building. There, they were given a hand-on look at the simulation lab, where they got to see the SIM manikins up close and experience the true-to-life emergency room setting. After the tour, Dr. Allatia Harris gave a presentation on the local economy and the jobs that are in immediate need that San Jacinto College provides training for. Overall the event was a success and the shared counselors recieved great feedback and plan to host another event next year!
