  • Tori Harle, KACC Multimedia Video Production Student from BBCHS

    Student-Centered Social Media #SCSM

    Tori Harle is the first to participate.

    Kankakee Area Career Center's Multimedia Video Production Instructor, Logan Miller, has selected Tori Harle to be the first student to cover KACC during Student-Centered Social Media week.  This experimental program allows our Multimedia Video Production (MmVP) students an opportunity to author and design social media posts on behalf of the school.

    Students will be invited, from time-to-time, to put their KACC program into professional action.  From taking photographs, short films to writing captions, our social media will have components designed and uploaded by students.

    To discern student posts, we will have a new hashtag:  #SCSM signifying Student-Centered Social Media. 

    Tori, a senior at BBCHS said she wishes KACC had the MmVP program last year.  It has helped her meet her goal as she has been accepted into Flashpoint Chicago, a digital arts academy. 

    Can't wait to see Tori's work!

  • Mr. Papineau so enjoys awarding raffle prizes to our students.  Here, he is with Charles Smith, a first-year student in our Fire-Rescue-EMR Program

    We're Positive About our Students

    KACC's Culture of Catching Students Doing Good is alive and well, evidenced by the fact of Mr. Papineau and I making 114 phone calls to congratulate parents on their student's excellence here at school.

    Because of the incredible number of students from the past six weeks, we decided to award six prizes for the raffle.  Fun fact - even though we have students from 15 area high schools, 3 of the 6 winners this month were from Crete-Monee High School.  

    The first three winners are: BeDaniel D'Autremont, Auto Technology Student from Manteno High School; Charles Smith, Fire-Rescue-EMR Student from Crete-Monee High School; and Isabella Wilczek, Law Enforcement Student from Crete Monee High School. 

     The second batch of winners is Kaitlin Murphy, Early Childhood Education Student from Crete Monee High School; Joseph Ledford, Auto Technology Student from Beecher High School; and, Stephanie Belcher, C.N.A. Training student from Grant Park High School. 

    Congratulations to all the students who received a positive referral during the first two weeks of December and the month of January.  For a complete list of students who earned a Positive Referral - please click on the link below:

    Former Student Returns to Share Her Expertise

    Thanks Gina Horn!

    It's fabulous when any of our students return to KACC for a visit, that's for sure.  This visit was a bit extra fun as former KACC Student, Gina Horn, visited our Cosmetology Salon and spent the entire day with our students teaching the newest techniques for crazy-cool nail design.  

    Gina has been very successful since her graduation from KACC.  Her talent, dedication to her art and hard work have paid off.  She now owns her own business, Meraki Nail Bar, in Frankfort, Illinois.

    Since her graduation, Gina has returned to KACC time and again to give back and share her knowledge and skill sets with our students.

    Thanks Gina!  You continue to amaze us.

  • Principal Guerin is delighted to accept the US Air Force's Donation of this Workbench/Tool Storage Cabinet.

    Thank You for Your Service....And the Fabulous Donation

    US Army Recruiters at KACC

    Kankakee Area Career Center was once again the benefactor of the generosity of others.  This time it was our own United States Air Force. 

    Here at KACC, Technical Sergeant William Chavanu is certainly no stranger.  He has visited KACC during Military Day, Emerging Workforce and other special events.   

    TSgt Chavanu gave us a little update on a couple of KACC alumni and how they are doing as active members of the Air Force. According to him, they are doing extremely well.

    The purpose of today's visit was to deliver an incredible tool storage unit.  This heavy-duty mobile tool cart is going to be a fantastic addition to our auto technology shop area, not to mention, a good experience for students to learn how to properly organize and store professional tools and supplies.

    US Air Force is another example of how relationships between the Career Center and our professional community are so important.  The support of our community is integral to KACC fulfilling our motto Preparing Students for Tomorrow.
