Who are the CCP Students? 

CCP students are students attending public, private and home schools in grades 7-12.  A current CCP student is Lydia Liskai, age 17 who attends Woodmore High School and Terra State. Lydia learned about the CCP program through a meeting at her high school. The CCP program appealed to her because she could explore a setting other than high school. Lydia is studying Power Technologies (automotive) and plans to add Agribusiness next year. She sees herself in an agriculture related career. Lydia chose Terra State because of its location, close to home and the campus is smaller and feels more personal. Lydia’s advice “Don’t overwhelm yourself with classes – expect the classes to be a challenge. This program is definitely worth it. Make sure you manage your time – don’t stretch yourself too thin.”
