Learned in a saleable skill that will
enable them to make a living,

Center achieved personal goals and
were prepared to enter the work
The center specializes in teaching
vocational skills not offered in school.
Students involved in the programs
took their required courses, such as
English and math, at school, and then
went to the center in the afternoon.
According to the Career Center
principal, Mr. I. T. Chivers, there
were about 400 students. They spent
one-half of every school day at the
Career Center. The Center offers a
wide variety of vocational programs,
"We offer such programs as data pro-
cessing, cosmetology, television
repair and auto mechanics," said

taining a job.
"The minute a student walks of
this campus he has the ability to ear
a living in a skilled vocational job
For example, a person who has com
pleted the Cosmetology course ca
immediately work at any beau
parlor or barber shop in the state o
Texas," commented Mr. Chivers.
He went on to say, "I'm not sayin
that there is anything wrong with col
lege, it's just nice to have somethin
to fall back on," he concluded.
The center also gives the student
chance to work in a different and un
pressured environment. "The at
mosphere is really relaxed. Th
center gave me a chance to learn an
