MANHATTAN — Kansas is watching.

Educators from across the state are keeping an eye on Iola High School students as they take the lead in programs that allow students to explore career options while still in high school, said Natalie Clark, who works with the Kansas Department of Education’s Career and Technical Education division.

Clark was among those who attended a workshop designed and led by eight IHS senior interns at the Annual Kansas CTE Conference Tuesday in Manhattan. The students taught a roomful of school administrators from across the state about the real-world skills they have learned this year while working as interns at Iola businesses.
