PRINGLE — West Side Career and Technology Center Administrative Director Nancy Tkatch on Monday presented information about the Pathways to Prosperity Program to the school’s Joint Operating Committee.

The program, based on research done at Harvard University, encourages young people to set goals and develop “pathways” for their achievement.

It encompasses encouraging students as young as grade-school age to consider various educational opportunities.

Committee member Karen Kyle emphasized the unlimited opportunities available to graduates of the center, including advanced training programs and college.

In another matter, Principal Richard Rava lauded the efforts of the school’s Future Business Leaders of America and Skills USA clubs for their recent participation in conferences in Hershey.

“Several of our Skills USA students placed in competition in such areas as carpentry, baking and television production,” Rava said.

The committee also approved a weapons policy’s first reading introduced by John Marianacci, chairperson of the Policy Committee, who said it would clarify and revise present policy.

The committee also approved Tkatch’s attendance at the Temple University Women’s Leadership Conference in May.

The next meeting of the Joint Operating Committee will be at 6:30 pm. May 23.
