Bart Shannon, Educational Specialist 

The faculty and staff of the Winston County Technical Center are excited about the opportunity to work with your student.  Each year, the Winston County Technical Center serves almost 400 students from each of the four schools within our District.  Currently, we offer educational programs in Automotive Technology, Business/Marketing Education, Cosmetology/Barbering, Electrical Technology, Health Science, and Welding Technology.  We truly believe that we have much to offer the students of Winston County.  It seems that now, more than ever, employers are seeking qualified individuals with the credentials needed to fill the employment needs of their businesses and organizations.  I am proud to inform you that all programs at the Winston County Technical Center can help your student begin their path of achieving the credentials and standards that current industry leader’s desire.  Each of our programs offer a specific career path with one or more industry recognized credentials, as identified by the Alabama Department of Education.  In addition, many of our programs are categorized in the high wage/high demand sector for jobs in the state of Alabama.  Along with our individual program offerings, students of the center may qualify to participate in dual-enrollment classes, which are offered at the local community colleges at night and during the summer.  These courses are provided on a scholarship basis to qualified students in grades 11 and 12.  I want to assure you that we place great emphasis on making sure that each student is carefully placed in a Career Technical program based on results from interest surveys and their individual career objective.  This process provides students the opportunity to achieve their full potential while enrolled at the Winston County Technical Center.  I want to encourage you to join us as we strive to move each student forward and upward.  Our instructors, counselor, career coach, and staff want to play a vital role in helping each student fulfill their individual goals and abilities.  In conclusion, I ask that you review our website and discuss with your student the many opportunities that exist in Career and Technical Education.  If you have any questions, please contact us so we can be of further assistance.  We look forward to an opportunity to serve you and the many success stories we will be able to reflect upon for years to come!
