Students from Hendricks High School are pictured in Basic Mechanics Class offered at Minnesota West, Canby Campus.

Minnesota West Com­munity and Technical Col­lege, in conjunction with the SWWC Service Co-op and the Future/Pathways to Prosperity United Way grant, is currently offering several pathways of educa­tional learning and hands-on exploration to area high school students in high de­mand career path areas.
“Students who have the opportunity to successful­ly participate in a college class while still in high school increase their odds of completing a post-sec­ondary certificate or de­gree. For many students, these opportunities help them determine interests and career paths,” states Kayla Westra, Dean of In­stitutional Effectiveness at Minnesota West. “We are excited about the expan­sion of our PSEO classes, which currently serve stu­dents in on-campus, on­line, and in the high school opportunities.”
