Recent graduates of John F. Kennedy High School in Guam are the first high school students in the Western Pacific region to earn National Career Readiness Certificates. The students, who were enrolled in the Guam Community College (GCC) Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs at the school, took WorkKeys assessments administered by the college in partnership with the Guam Department of Labor. They used the KeyTrain curriculum to prepare for the assessments.
