Springfield Technical Community College has reached out to provide career training to students attending an alternative high school in Hartford.

STCC’s Workforce Development Center made it possible for students from the High Road School of Hartford to get a sample of EMT training on Tuesday.

Other Hartford students found out what it would be like to study digital printing and precision manufacturing.

Teaching assistant Allena Hall told 22News that her mission is to make certain these students follow through on their opportunities.

“We do promote them to try for community college because I’m the first student to go to school in my family,” Hall explained. “It’s kind of scary when you don’t have a role model to show you the ropes. I want to be that for my students.”

Based on their experience at STCC, these alternative high school students from Hartford will now decide if the community college can help further their goals in life.
