The Woman’s Club of Slatington has named Lehigh Career & Technical Institute student Katelyn Verba its November “Girl of the Month.” Her photo and profile are featured in the November issue of Blue Mountain Town & Country Gazette.
Verba, 17, is a Northern Lehigh High School senior enrolled in LCTI’s Emerging Health Professionals program.
Emerging Health Professionals is an intensive, dual-enrollment program designed to give students a head start on college and expose them to a variety of health care careers through job shadows, hands-on training and clinical study at medical facilities across the region.
It’s a great fit for Verba, who plans to become a registered nurse and work in a hospital emergency room. She’s also interested in pursuing a master’s degree in nursing, perhaps with a pediatric oncology specialty.
Congratulations, Katelyn! Keep up the good work!
