LSM experiences local education
On Dec. 6, the Leadership Southern Maryland Class of 2019 participated in the fourth of nine educational sessions for the 2018-19 LSM Executive Program.
This session’s topic was education in the region with a focus on career and technology curriculums.
The class began the day at Calvert Career and Technology Academy where they were given an overview of the academy’s structure and goals by CTA Principal Mark Wilding. Wilding also provided information about career and technology educational opportunities throughout the Calvert County public school system. Class members were able to tour the CTA facility and watch students in action in a variety of courses including graphic arts, welding, HVAC, cyber security and cosmetology, as well as the results of the CTA culinary students’ efforts, enjoying from-scratch pastries for breakfast and a lunch, according to a press release.
In the afternoon, the class was welcomed to the College of Southern Maryland Hughesville regional campus by Maureen Murphy, CSM president. They toured the state-of-the-art building devoted to trades education and learned about the college’s course offerings aimed at serving students at a variety of steps along their career paths.
