Wilson Talent Center to Host Year-End Student Showcase on May 11

The Wilson Talent Center (WTC) will host its Year-End Student Showcase on Thursday, May 11, 2023, from 4:00-7:00 pm. Located at 611 Hagadorn Road in Mason, the WTC offers twenty Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs to high school juniors and seniors.

The showcase is an opportunity for family, friends and community partners to see the projects students have created and the skills they have learned throughout the school year.

More than 800 students are participating in CTE programs in a variety of career pathways including arts and communications, health sciences, information technology, human services and manufacturing to name a few. Students who attend the WTC are earning high school academic credit, free college credit as well as state and national certifications. In addition, eight programs will offer an early college option for the 2023-24 school year where students can leave with up to an associate degree or industry credential at no cost to the student.

“The Student Showcase is a wonderful capstone event to celebrate our student’s accomplishments throughout the school year” notes Joe Wenzel, principal. “We as a staff, see our students’ successes daily, and this event allows their family and friends to have the same opportunity. The students love demonstrating skills they have learned, using technology they have mastered and sharing projects they have created,” Wenzel also noted.

The Wilson Talent Center, operated by Ingham Intermediate School District, offers career and technical education programs for high school juniors and seniors who reside in Dansville, East Lansing, Haslett, Holt, Leslie, Mason, Okemos, Stockbridge, Waverly, Webberville and Williamston. Applications are also accepted from Lansing School District, Fowlerville Community Schools and Eaton and Clinton County schools. For more information, visit Wilson Talent Center.
