The American Council on Education, the Lumina Foundation for Education and the Ad Council launched the KnowHow2Go campaign in 2007 in order to help turn students’ college dreams into action-oriented goals. In St. Clair County, a KnowHow2Go initiative was formed to “create a path toward higher education.” A broad coalition of organizations is implementing a coordinated effort to increase the number of students graduating from high school and pursuing post-secondary degrees, including certificates, and associate and bachelor’s degrees. Baker College of Port Huron, as one of the original partners of the initiative, will present a series of informational workshops in addition to “It’s All Business!” Future career spotlight sessions include:

  • March 15 – “To Protect and Serve,” a workshop about criminal justice careers
  • May 3 – “Human Services: Making a Difference in People’s Lives”

In addition, a workshop about medical laboratory technician careers will be held in April (date to be determined).
