Thirteen Homer High School students visited the Alaska Vocational Training Education Center in Seward on Feb. 8 to tour their programs. These four students chose the culinary program to shadow. From left to right are Desmond Vanliere, Sariah Whaley, Andy Super, Isaac Jump. Other students went to Welding, Electrical, and Welding. All the students were pretty serious about attending AVTEC in their chosen field. The school district’s Career and Technical Education program paid for the trip and the over night accommodations (Photo by Lin Hampson)
