BRIDGEWATER, NJ – In celebration of February as Career and Technical Education Month, Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School (SCVTHS) will hold its 10th Annual Open House from 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 4.
A snow date of Feb. 11 has been set in case of inclement weather.
During the event, faculty, staff and student ambassadors will be available to answer questions, give tours, and provide information on each of the seventeen Career and Technical Education Programs available at SCVTHS. The Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School students who have volunteered to become student ambassadors will lead tours and speak as representatives for their Career and Technical Programs during the event. Prior to the open house, these student ambassadors have been assisting SCVTHS staff with touring Somerset County middle schools in an effort to increase awareness of Career and Technical Education. Furthermore, the student ambassadors also play important roles in helping to prepare and decorate for the annual open house event.

In addition, hors d'oeuvres will be served by Culinary Arts students and guests can meet with the advisors of SCVTHS sports teams, extracurricular activities, and clubs.
