Career Center Welcomes New Instructors

The New Castle Career Center (NCCC) welcomes two new program instructors to their staff. Darrell Shawl will lead the Computer Operations course and Joshua Richardson joins the Welding Program.

Shawl holds a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and Computer Security. Previously, he served as an instructor at Whitewater Career Center in Connersville and worked in IT for Pepsi and UPS. Shawl will bring his valuable industry experience to the classroom and is looking forward to getting to know his new students and colleagues throughout this year.

“So far everyone at NCCC has been very helpful and welcoming,” Shawl noted. “I’m eager to teach my students the skills they need to be successful in the information technology industry.”

Richardson will be coming on board to serve as the Welding Assistant. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and previously worked at Wilbur Wright Elementary and Westwood Elementary. Last year, Richardson was approached to help with the Building Trades program when both instructors were out with illness.

“Helping with Building Trades was my first experience with the Career Center,” Richardson explained. “I really enjoy working hands-on with the students to help them learn new skills.”
