"Of those 99% that completed, 54% went to the workforce, while 45% are continuing their education. For those in the career and technical programs, 90% of those who went to work are in a job related to their field of training."

Haggemeyer says that for those that continued their education, 84% of them are attending a Nebraska college or university. She says that this graduation report is the college’s report card, while testaments show their students are successful after completion.
