“One of the fastest-growing industries in this county is healthcare. We love hosting this Career Day because it’s important for us to expose our students to a variety of post-secondary education opportunities. Also, many of our students at William Penn are in a unique position because they have already received certification for lucrative jobs as phlebotomists and EKG technicians; not many high school students can say that!” said Allied Health and EKG Instructor Melissa Hanley.
