Tech Day at NATCO
Student Leaders Visit NATCO
The South Shore Marion County Youth Leadership (SSMCYL) team recently visited NATCO offices for their annual Tech Day. The SSMCYL team is a group of twenty 9th grade students selected from Flippin, Yellville and Bruno-Pyatt high schools. The program utilizes a curriculum that strengthens leadership skills in the students as they learn to serve their schools and communities.
The annual NATCO Tech Day focuses on showing students the technology and communications services we provide to the community. Students also had the opportunity to explore the various career fields employed at NATCO, including engineering, information technology, customer service, outside plant installation and network operations. Students rotate through stations where we covered topics including fiber network infrastructure, Internet and data privacy, aptitude tests and retirement savings.
Kayla Stafford, NATCO Computer Specialist and former SSMCYL student (2009) said, “Tech Day demonstrates what goes into providing a future-proof fiber network and how that technology can keep these students’ talent here in our local communities.” One student said her favorite station was, “where we learned about wires; it’s an amazing process.” Another student added, “There is a lot [more] that goes into Internet access than typing in the Wi-Fi password.”
We’re proud to sponsor the SSCMYL group each year in conjunction with the 4-H Club, U of A Division and Agriculture Research and Extension office and the Twin Lakes Rotary Club. We were pleased to present the students with a $3,000 sponsorship from NATCO and the South Shore Foundation to help fund their activities for the year. The group is currently wrapping up their program and preparing for a special graduation ceremony this May. Good luck to all of these amazing students!
