KACC's Mission of Preparing Students for Tomorrow can only be fulfilled by working with teachers, students, parents and others within both industry and education communities. 

On March 1st, eight organizations came to KACC to speak with our students about the vast array of options and opportunities available to them upon graduating high school and KACC.  

Every student in attendance was allowed an opportunity to speak with and gather information from our guest attendees.
