Bright Spots: K-64 in Catawba County

K-64 is a five-year collaboration between the economic development and education sectors in Catawba County. The goal is for Catawba County to prepare residents from pre-kindergarten to retirement to compete in the global economy. The hope is to build a talented pipeline through one-to-world technology, character and soft skills development, work-based learning, and more.
