In Brazoria County, Pearland by Reporter NewsLeave a Comment

A soft opening of the new culinary wing and restaurant at Robert Turner College and Career High School will be held Oct. 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the school at 4717 Bailey Road in Pearland.

Turner College and Career High School along with the Northern Brazoria County Education Alliance (NBCEA) is hosting the “VIP” evening of hors d’oeuvres and refreshments to celebrate the new culinary areas. The community is invited.

Included in the evening the NBCEA will be holding their annual equipment fundraiser.

Guests will be able to tour other Career and Technical Education (CTE) Labs which will include the new welding and HVAC labs.

For more than 10 years the NBCEA has reached out to local businesses and individuals to sponsor equipment and consumables for the CTE pathways at the three Pearland ISD High Schools.

The Northern Brazoria County Education Alliance (NBCEA) is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in December 2007 by a group of community partners for the purpose of aligning industry, business, education and government to improve the regional workforce and economic growth.

The focus is on continuous workforce improvement and technology consistent with the needs of industry and business. NBCEA services are available to Pearland ISD students.

In partnership with Pearland Independent School District (PISD), the NBCEA offers a high school dual credit technical program with San Jacinto College, and Alvin Community College.

The program affords PISD high school students the opportunity to graduate with skills matched to em-ployer needs, knowledge to succeed in college, advan-ced career training and entry into key industries with a meaningful career path.

NBCEA offers its industry and business partners a one-stop career center that trains, screens and refers qualified, competent and skilled workers.

The NBCEA has partnered with Turner College & Career High School which opened in fall 2013. Students are able to choose a college and career path for their major coursework, earn up to 60 college credits while in high school, and earn six years of education in four years.
