Linn State accepting CPoD summer program applications

For the tenth year, Linn State Technical College is hosting the 2011 session of Computer Professions on Demand (CPoD) program scheduled for June 19-24. 

CPoD, now in its thirteenth year, is a collaborative effort of the Jefferson City Information Technology Coalition, the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce and Linn State.

CPoD provides 25 local high school students the unique opportunity to explore career fields in computer technology.   The week-long camp allows the participant to gain hands-on experience and to visit mid-Missouri businesses and state agencies to learn more about the use of information technology systems.

Students selected for the program receive full scholarships to participate and stay on the Linn State campus for a week. 

“CPoD has proven to be an outstanding experience for the nearly 150 students who have participated,” said Kathy Scheulen, Assistant Dean of Enrollment Management.  “In addition to learning about information technology they have also gained leadership experience.”

CPoD applications are due March 31, 2011.  If you know of a local high school student interested in the CPoD program, please contact Stephanie Scheulen, Enrollment Management Associate for Linn State at 573.897.5282 or stephanie.scheulen@linnstate.edu.

With more than 35 programs, Linn State Technical College is Missouri’s only public two-year technical college with a statewide mission.   LSTC prepares students for profitable employment and a life of learning.  LSTC has three locations in Linn, Mexico and Jefferson City.
