The travel and tourism industry is one of the largest sources of employment in the
United States and the world. By many accounts, travel and tourism are considered to be our
country's largest service industries. This industry will require twenty-four million
additional trained workers by the year 2000.
At the same time, today's young people need to see the connection between their
education and the workplace. They look to educators for guidance and motivation in
preparing for rewarding careers. Business and education are working together to insure
success in the workplace. The challenge is to successfully prepare students to enter the
workforce and to be productive individual in today's global society.
The Academy instructors and the Administration of West Jefferson High School, with the
help of our business partners, look forward to meeting this challenge.
The success of the Hospitality Travel & Tourism Academy depends on the combined
commitment of the leaders in the business, education and government. Partners may assist
the Academy in many ways:
Serve as advisory board members.
Develop and provide paid internships for academy students.
