Cameron to host pre-education students from Great Plains Technology Center

Cameron University's Department of Education and the CU chapter of the Student Oklahoma Education Association (SOEA) will host students from the Great Plains Technology Center's new pre-education program, which focuses on career skills to become a successful teacher. The pre-education students are juniors and seniors from Lawton High School, Eisenhower High School, MacArthur High School, Fletcher High School, Sterling High School and Elgin High School. They will visit the CU campus on Wednesday, October 7 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

"We were contacted by Judy Holland, an instructor at Great Plains Tech Center, who feels it is important for these students to learn more about the baccalaureate degree in education," says Lorinda Rogers, undergraduate student advisor for the CU Department of Education. "By spending the day at Cameron, these students will get a glimpse of the next step to becoming a public school teacher."

During the visit, the student guests will attend a class in Children's Literature, have lunch with current Cameron education students and SOEA members, and tour the campus. They will also receive information on admissions and financial assistance.

For more information on Cameron's degrees in education, contact the CU Department of Education at 581-2320.
