Over 50 students from three northeast Arkansas high schools were on the Arkansas State University-Newport campus Monday as ASUN hosted the final of three Career Cluster Mini Camps.
The camps give high school students the opportunity to explore potential career paths through hands-on †demonstrations and activities. †While on campus, students had the opportunity to interact with instructors, while learning the job qualifications and skills necessary to land top in-demand jobs. Students rotated among three “Breakout Sessions” throughout the course of the day, with the opportunity to learn about ASUN programs including Liberal Arts, Nursing, Business, Surgical Technology, Renewable Energy Diesel Technology and High Voltage Lineman. †All visiting students also received a tour of the ASUN campus. Following a morning welcome session hosted by the staff of ASUN, students from Tuckerman, Harrisburg and Bay were divided up into groups for the “Breakout Sessions.” †The students were also treated to lunch on the ASUN campus, with many door prizes given away during the mealtime. Two other Career Clusters have previously been hosted by ASUN, one on the Jonesboro campus and one on the Marked Tree campus.
