NEACTC Enrollment Spikes Upward
Jonesboro - NEA Career & Technical Center has posted gains in student enrollment for the fourth consecutive year.

NEACTC Director Eddie Crain notes that, "It takes effort from every single member of our staff and the cooperation of our partner school district administrators for continued growth in our enrollment."  Crain attributed growth to partner schools that send their students by grade level to the center for spring tours.  "Those students are usually amazed at the opportunities that exist at our center."

Faculty and staff at NEACTC also does an excellent job in promoting the merits of their individual programs of study during those tours.  
hburg2And, it really helps when our partner schools, "Open up their gyms and auditoriums so that our staff members can begin the process of recruiting their students with a look at what is offered at NEACTC."

Student Affairs Counselor Sherry Bookout says that she truly appreciates area counselors collaborating with her to provide opportunities for area students to attend the center for specialized training.  "They work with me to set tour dates, they help me arrange times when Mr. Crain and I come to their schools to speak to their students, and they really spend time to schedule their students so that they can attend our center.  I think we all work together extremely well.  And, it really is appreciated."

NEACTC serves students attending from four Northeast Arkansas counties representing 13 area school districts:  Bay, Brookland, Buffalo Island Central, Greene County Tech, Harrisburg, Hoxie, Jonesboro, Nettleton, Paragould, Riverside, Valley View, Westside, and Walnut Ridge.
