Career Director Corner

Welcome to the Northern Neck Regional Technical Center Governor’s STEM Academy for Agriculture and Maritime Studies

 My name is Samantha Dixon, and I am excited to be serving as your Career Director.  My main goal is to equip students to be successful in obtaining and thriving in satisfying careers.  I also would also like to see local and regional businesses benefit from the well-trained, well-equipped workforce that our students can provide. 

As such, I will assist students in…

  • Figuring out who they are and in setting educational and career goals.
  • Developing skills necessary for workplace success.
  • Identifying the factors influencing their career development and assessing their interests, abilities, and values.
  • Locating resources and sources of career information.
  • Determining next steps and developing a plan to achieve their goals.

In this endeavor, all of us have a part---the community and businesses, the student, their families, and the faculty and staff at the tech center.  I look forward to working with you in this partnership to achieve student success.  I can best be reached via email at [email protected]  and during school hours at 804-333-4940.
