High school seniors who choose to pursue career or technical certificates or degrees at State Fair Community College will be invited to a special signing day Saturday, March 2, 2019, at 9 a.m. in the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center on the Sedalia campus.

Students who wish to attend this special event with family and friends need to apply for admission to SFCC by Feb. 1, 2019. In addition to being recognized for committing to a future in career and technical education, students will have a chance to win $250 scholarships for each program.

SFCC offers technical programs in agriculture; automotive; accounting, business and office management; computers, network administration and information systems; criminal justice; early childhood development; construction management; engineering and architectural design; electrical and industrial maintenance; robotics; machining; and welding. Health science careers offered include dental hygiene, diagnostic medical sonography; nurse aide; medication technician; pharmacy technician, health information, medical coding, assisting and laboratory technician; practical and registered nursing, occupational therapy assistant; and radiologic technology.  Admission applications are free and available at www.sfccmo.edu/apply.

For students pursuing a health science career, admission to SFCC is not automatic acceptance into the program. Acceptance into these programs is selective and requires completing a second, program-specific admission application.

This is the second year SFCC has held a signing day for career and technical education students. The event not only recognizes, celebrates and welcomes high school seniors who have chosen SFCC but also features a keynote speaker, resource fair and information sessions on financial aid, student life and more.

This was the first time SFCC held the event that recognizes this important milestone in students’ lives and the value of a strong technical workforce.
