Mr. Cameron Shepard

Business Education Coordinator

  • I am glad to be serving students and businesses at the Florence Career Center. My main goal is to help students gain real world work experience through Work-Based Learning. By exposing students to these Work-Based Learning experiences, they are able to better understand the demands of the workforce, begin building a network of people in their chosen career pathway, create better content for a resume, and have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom in actual workplace conditions. 

    I have over a decade of Workforce Development experience. During that time, I helped placed youth and adults in Work-Based Learning experiences all over the Pee Dee Region. I have served our communities as a Career Counselor, Business Services Consultant, and as the SC Works Manager of Operations for the Pee Dee Region. 

    Workforce Development is simply the local area coming together to invest in the training of its people (Workforce) so the community will have more opportunity for economic development and growth (more and better paying jobs). The more skills that the people in the community have, the more likely we are to have existing industries expand and new industries move into our communities.   

    If you know of any businesses that would like to invest in the future of their business and community by offering Work-Based Learning experiences, please contact me. Cameron Shepard
