Hello from Ms. McKenzie

Welcome to SELECT Programs! I am Ms. McKenzie, your program leader. I am so excited to have you in our program!

We are going to learn so many valuable skills throughout the program, including soft skills like active listening to professional skills like word processing. We will also get a little taste of each one of the Technology Tracks®: Mapping, Audio-Video, Website Development and Design, 3D Modeling, and Graphic Design.
