November is Career Development Month

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has designated November as Career Development Month with November 11-15 recognized as National Career Development Week and November 13 as National Career Development Day. This month-long awareness campaign promotes career development across North Carolina and salutes everyone involved in supporting students in discovering career pathways.

“Duplin County Schools' Career Development Coordinators (CDCs) provide essential career guidance support for CTE students throughout the district. They work collaboratively with school administrators, student support services, and teachers to ensure career connections are made between schools, parents, business/industry, post-secondary institutions, and community organizations.  We celebrate, in the month of November, the dedication of our districts' CDCs as they support career development activities aligned to STEAMA "Pathways with Purpose," shared Tarla Smith, Chief of Staff for Innovation, Duplin County Schools.

“Career Technical Education (CTE) embedded curriculum and innovative opportunities through STEAMA is vital to opening pathways of career success for all students. We are grateful for the amazing opportunities afforded to our students through CTE as we celebrate Career Development Month, Duplin County Schools Career Development Coordinators and everyone involved with Career Technical Education,” stated Dr. Austin Obasohan, Superintendent for Duplin County Schools.
