Wrangler Rally sets stage for future FHTC students Flint Hills Technical College photo

The Flint Hills Technical College main campus was bursting at the seams Thursday as nearly 600 high school students from across the state attended the college's Wrangler Rally.

Students had the chance of attending a morning or afternoon session. Both included a short presentation about the college before students were dismissed to a program of their choosing for talks with faculty and staff and participation in hands-on projects. An activity fair helped to wrap up the event.

Organizer and recruiter Bryan Crouch tells KVOE News this has become a huge recruiting event for the college.

Crouch says the program draws attention to technical education as a whole, with more emphasis on technical education now coming from a lot of different sources -- especially the Kansas State Department of Education. Students, Crouch says, can graduate from the college and then earn starting salaries ranging from $40,000 to $60,000 as soon as they receive their diplomas.
