Northern Kentucky community college works to prepare future students for success

State Senator Jack Westwood’s Career Pathways Bill, which was passed by the General Assembly this year, is aimed at better preparing high school students for educational success after graduation.

As a result, a number of post secondary schools have developed programs to benefit students while they’re still in high school.

Recently, Pure Politics sat down with Amy Monson, Coordinator of Career Services at Gateway Community and Technical College in Northern Kentucky.

Monson talked about a plan Gateway is implementing this fall to benefit current high school students both educationally and financially.

Gateway, which has 3 campuses in Northern Kentucky, has an enrollment of approximately 5000 students.
