first time to all Flint students, provided vocational training
and skills appropriate for immediate post high school
employment. The Health Care Facility included training in
Dental Lab, Dental Assistance, Medical Lab, Abnormal
Psychology, Nurse Aide and Health Occupations.
Mrs. Margaret Washburn was chairperson for the
department and taught along with Miss Patricia Taunt, Mr.
David Thomas, Mr. Pete Pennock and Mr. Don Foxworth.
Mrs. Sedgewick, Cnurse aid teacherj familiarized students
with various health occupations, the basic principles of first aid
such as charting, patient care and introduced students to the
hospital and nursing home facilities. Mrs. Washburn, CI-Iealth
Occupationsj offered basic nursing skills used in many health
occupations such as physical therapy, occupational therapy,
orthopedics, dietary, housekeeping and reception work. Miss
Taunt's duties fDental Assistantj involved helping students
learn how to assist the dentist in his office such as preparing
the patient for dental work, making teeth impressions, taking
teeth x-rays, performing reception, clerical, secretarial and
office needs and doing selected dental laboratory work. Mr.
Thomas CDental Lab Tech.j taught the routine of working in
a dental lab such as learning the use of different dental lab
machinery. Medical Lab, taught by Mr. Pennock, offered
students an opportunity to gain a working knowledge of basic
medical laboratory proceedures. The successful student used
this training either as direct vocational education to secure
medical laboratory employment, or as a strong foundation upon
which to further his medical care education. Abnormal
Psychology, taught by Mr. Foxworth, drew students who were
interested in the field of medicine. The course mainly covered
the study of both neurotic and psychotic individuals. To assure

While Electricity classes have been a part of Northwestern
since 1964. the Magnet Program is in its first year. Now three
rooms are used. The small room, 110, serves as a study area for
both first year Occupational Electricity and second year
Industrial Electricity. Both laboratory rooms have wall to wall
carpeting. The first year of training is basic. It is the launch pad
to studies in medical electronics. radio, T-V. radar, automotive.
heating and air conditioning, appliance repair and computers, to
mention only a few. The second year student begins a specialized
course. Expertness is developed in the use of electric motors,
generators, electric wiring, motor controls and related study. The
laboratory is crammed full of up-to-date intricated equipment.
This is career training at its best. In the first year laboratory.
there are twelve work stations for a capacity of 24 students. Each
station has a large wood box full of components, a three-drawer
storage cabinet, a power supply and a meter. The power supply
provides direct current, alternating current. audio frequency
signals, radio frequency signals and a speaker. Other portable
equipment includes such equipment as an oscilloscope. a signal
tracer, and a transistor tester. Some projects are built and some
repairs of equipment are done by students. Half of the students
time is taken with doing experiments, using the components and
the equipment to good advantage. Many students take additional
training in the armed services, Bell and Howell Schools, or other
technical training to qualify for a more desirable career. High
school training in the electrical-electronics field helps insure
success in advanced training careers.
