Wanda Compton

P-TECH Project Manager

Wanda is responsible for managing the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) Program, which enables students to begin their college and professional lives more quickly and with more support than the typical school-to-work pathway. This program is a grade 9-13 model where students seamlessly complete a High School diploma and a NSCC IT program along with industry mentoring, paid internships and first-in-line job opportunities with partner companies, like IBM. Some continue on to further post-secondary education. These careers require students who have a strong foundation in sciences, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects.
