Pella Signing day
The excitement is evident by Pella area students who signed up for apprenticeships through the WorkSMART Connector and Career Academy of Pella

WorkSMART Connector and the Career Academy of Pella celebrated area high school students who signed up for work-based learning apprenticeship opportunities. Students from Pella, Pella Christian, Knoxville, PCM, Melcher-Dallas, Twin Cedars, North Mahaska and homeschools will now work to complete hours of work and learning to earn special certification while also getting paid.

Students took part in the signing day and later shared more about why they chose to commit to this experience on the Podcast “Let’s Talk Pella.”

Teri Vos, WorkSMART Director of Work Based Learning, shared how rewarding for the community this event was by saying, “To have this number of students and employers participate we will all benefit.”
