What Is A Non-Traditional Career?

When you hear "Non-traditional" career, it generally applies to careers your gender (boy or girl) does not "traditionally" go into. For girls these broad areas involve technology, trades such as construction and welding, and public services such as police and fire. For boys the areas involve early childhood education such as elementary school teachers, and healthcare careers in the field of nursing. There are many advantages to non-traditional careers, such as the ability to stand out in a field of applicants, and the fact that non-trad careers often pay exceptionally well!

Hillsboro High School Receives $35,000 donation to Engineering and Auto programs

WOW! Hillsboro High School got a call from the Schwab Charitable Fund a couple weeks ago letting them know that an anonymous donation was being made to their Engineering and Auto Tech programs, totalling a whopping $35,000! Someone in our community has a huge heart for these kids and is a very generous philathropist as well.

The total amount donated to the programs for this year totals over $46,000 which meets their original target!

In addition, St. Helens high school's auto tech program is donating a vehicle to Hillsboro High School, with the idea that the vehicle will be auctioned off and proceeds used to support HilHi's program. You can read more about the car and the donation made by St. Helens High school on Oregon Live:

Congratulations to HilHi on both donations, and to the anonymous donor, and the St. Helens High school students....congratulaions to you too, for helping make a difference in the lives of students who were at risk of losing precious classes and resources!
