High school students sign up for post-graduation jobs, apprenticeships

More than 60 high school seniors arrived at the Tuscaloosa Career and Technology Academy on Wednesday night and they all left with post-graduation employment plans.

The second annual West Alabama Regional Signing Day, organized by West Alabama Works, saluted the students as they officially signed up for jobs or career technical education apprenticeships after high school graduation.

Employers like Mercedes-Benz US International, BFGoodrich, DCH Health System, Carroll’s Creek Fire Protection District and more provided the career opportunities.

“We’re so excited to be able to celebrate our student’s success,” said Donny Jones, who serves as the West Alabama Works executive director and chief operating officer of the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama.

The Signing Day event originated in 2019, but was canceled in 2020 and 2021.
