From John David’s article on the WQAD website:

A program in Whiteside County is helping high school students transition from school to work.

That’s especially important if they’re not going on to college.

As students enter the Whiteside Area Career Center on Tuesday, they’re on the path to learning a trade.

Ian Casten gets hands-on work in the automotive class.

The two-year program will give students like him the skills to get a job.

“You can go into anything from body work to automotive work,” he said.  “It’s just interesting.”
