Lackawanna High School Students were encouraged by Bill Owens from Praxair to pick one of the “STEM” disciplines: science, technology, engineering, or math for a possible career choice. Forty students participate in the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) program offered by the Lackawanna High School. P-TECH enables students to begin their college and professional lives more quickly and with individual support from mentors and work-based learning opportunities. They are expected to graduate with an associate degree from Trocaire at no cost, along with the skills and knowledge they will need to continue their studies or step seamlessly into well-paying jobs in the Health Occupation Industry. PTECH is a program offered through the collaboration of Catholic Health, Erie 1 BOCES, Lackawanna School District, and Trocaire College.by Praxair Inc.
