SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Many students across Kentuckiana returned to school Wednesday August 7, including those in Bullitt, Hardin, Meade, Nelson and Shelby counties.

High school students in Bullitt County found construction sites at their schools. All three high schools are building College and Career Centers that will offer programs in different career fields which will give students exposure to different opportunities.

"The more options students have the more opportunity they have to get into a field that they actually enjoy, they're going to have more success," said Jeff Marshall, principal of North Bullitt High School.

The building will have classrooms and a computer area. The centers can hold many programs and will have the capacity to be used for night classes, possibly by Jefferson Community and Technical College and other colleges, for the students.

"We can customize those for business, consumer family science and culinary," Marshall said. "We can also do agriculture, which is Bullitt East and Bullitt Central."

All high school students will be able to utilize the center at their respective school. The programs will have dual credit options which will allow students to get college credits.
