Haas Automation (Haas), in association with the Region 8 Works Council (R8WC) and the local Career Centers/Cooperative hosted this year’s CTE Summit Friday, November 18, 2016 at WestGate Academy Conferencing & Training Center. More than 520 students were in attendance, making the third Summit the largest yet.

Hoosier Hills Career Center of Bloomington is part of R8WC. Hoosier Hills Career Center Assistant Director Christi McBride says this event helps students understand there are options available close to home.
