On May 6th, Vantage students celebrated In-Demand Jobs Week by participating in the 4th Annual Career Advanced Placement (CAP) Signing Day. The event marks the beginning of students’ professional careers, as both they and their employers—often those that have worked for or interned at throughout their education—sign the necessary documents to accept them as proper employees after graduation from Vantage Career Center.
27 students and 20 employers participated in the momentous occasion, with Superintendent Rick Turner giving opening remarks for the event. It was all made possible thanks to Lt. Governor Jon Husted, who both created the Signing Day concept and continued to support it into the future, paving the way for countless students—just like those at Vantage Career Center—to achieve their priceless moment of signing at the start of their career. For students, it’s a physical representation of the culmination of the two years that they have poured into their career education.
