Principal Wes Aymer shows Rep. Coffey around Capitol Area Careers Center.

Rep. Coffey visited two distinctly different education organizations this week.

On Monday, Rep. Coffey stopped by Capitol Area Career Center. The center provides high school students with a career-focus and technical education geared to preparing them for the local workforce.

The program individualizes the experience for the students and engages them in skills-based, hands-on training utilizing current technology.  Capitol Area Career is making sure there is a highly-trained workforce to meet the needs of local businesses and ensures its students are employed in high-paying jobs. 

Rep. Coffey met some of his youngest constituents at Teddy Bear Christian Development Center in Riverton on Thursday. Director Penny Driver led a tour of the facility where he joined students for lunch and stories about their school experiences.

The education provided by these remarkable organizations, while vastly different, will afford long-term positive outcomes for their students that will last throughout their lifetime.
