Skylie Duke: Future Dental Assistant
Occupational Goal: Dental Assistant
“As a high school student I took CTE classes that I knew would benefit me in my career. . .These classes were a great benefit to me and helped me learn a lot relating to the health field. They got me a step closer to achieving my goal and having that knowledge before entering the dental program [at the Ogden-Weber Applied Technology College (OWATC)].
“My goal is to enter the dental assisting field shortly after I complete my training at the OWATC. I want to work full time and enjoy every minute of my [career.] I am willing to work hard. . . This is something I have wanted to do for six years now and I won’t let anything get in my way of accomplishing my goal.”
—Skylie Duke, Bonneville High School
