WNCC Hosting WNCC Hosting Powerline Maintenance & Construction Open House

September 26, 2017
Western Nebraska Community College (WNCC) is hosting a Powerline Construction & Maintenance Open House Oct. 18 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the WNCC Powerline Lab, located at 1621 Kansas Street in Alliance, Neb.
The event is free and open to any prospective student and their family who is interested in the powerline industry. Attendees can participate in hands-on activities with simulations,
including the rescue pole top, digger and bucket tops, and pole climbing.
"We are excited about hosting students and their families who are interested in the Powerline Maintenance & Construction program," said Admissions Director Gretchen Foster. "The best part of the event is for them to get to know our students and learn about their experiences. The electrical power industry is an exciting and rewarding one with very competitive wages and gives them the ability to live and work almost anywhere."
Attendees will visit with WNCC faculty and current students about the program, and representatives from WNCC Admissions and Financial Aid will also be on hand to discuss scholarships and financial aid opportunities.
Everyone is encouraged to stay and enjoy a complimentary meal, served by WNCC staff and students.
