On Tuesday, Oct. 18, Cranberry High School’s ninth-grade students took a trip to the Venango Technology Center in Oil City.

In this Vo-Tech tour, the students were given an opportunity to visit the range of specialties offered by the center, including welding, allied health, HVAC, and other areas of study.

Each year, students are introduced to the Venango Technology Center through this trip in an effort to expose them to the opportunities provided by the program and to encourage future participation in the unique educational setting.
