National Signing Day

In order to help close the skills gap and raise awareness of career options in the skilled trades, North Monto Technical Career Center participated in SkillsUSA National Signing Day Sponsored by Klein Tools, celebrating thousands of high school seniors across the country pursuing a career in the skilled trades. North Montco was one of approximately 300 schools across the U.S. participating in National Signing Day, which recognized over 2,500 students nationwide.

In a style similar to “National Signing Day” events for high school student-athletes, seniors in the Construction Trades cluster (Carpentry, Electrical Trades and HVAC) at North Montco were recognized as they signed their “letters of intent” for a job offer, apprenticeship or advanced technical training. These seniors also received a Klein Tools Signing Kit, which included a hat, t-shirt, water bottle and a pair of Klein Tools pliers to begin their lifelong careers.
