February is Career and Technical Education month. Technology programs and organizations all over the country have been working hard advancing their knowledge and showcasing their talents. Locally, what better way to celebrate than to recognize the Marion Regional Career Center?

At their annual Awards for Excellence event Tuesday, Feb. 26, the Indiana Department of Education recognized the Marion Regional Career Center’s Cybersecurity and Information Technology Academy. The event celebrates accomplished students, programs, and business partnerships in Career and Technical Education (CTE) throughout the state. This year, 43 CTE students, programs, and partnerships, both high school and college, were recognized at the event.

“Participation in Career and Technical Education provides students more opportunities for future endeavors,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Thank you to those being recognized for their support and dedication to creating successful CTE environments for Indiana’s students.”

Boasting their current 16 programs to choose from, the Marion Regional Career Center’s mission is to develop in every student’s technical, academic, and job readiness skills. MRCC offers programs in fields such as aviation, culinary arts, health, and information technology. Even more programs will be coming soon.
