Career Development Coordinator
Location: Counseling Office
I am honored to be the Career Development Coordinator (CDC) at West Lincoln High School. My role is to support and coordinate Career and Technical Education services, courses, teachers, and students at both the middle and high school, as well as the Lincoln County School of Technology (LCST).
As your CDC, I am excited to help my students create a career plan that will afford them many opportunities to explore and become aware of the options students have after high school. While it is exciting to figure this out, it can be quite overwhelming. I am here to help you maximize the opportunities that are offered to high school students. Please come see me regarding career planning, internships or apprenticeships, I am here to help you.
