As I look back on the 2018-2019 school year, I am proud to say that YOU have made this year a success. We have more students passing the CPAS and PBAs, more earning national industry certifications, and more students dually enrolled in college credit bearing courses than we’ve had the previous year.
I am thankful for the work our students, staff, and parents have done this year, and I ask each of you for your continued support for this department. Best wishes to our seniors as they embark on post high school life. My message to you is as simple as this…….Life is what YOU make of it, and never forget that it is YOURS to make.
Success can be measured quantitatively as indicated above, but I prefer qualitatively. Quality has to matter in everything we do. Aristotle is quoted as saying "Quality is not an act, it is a habit.“ Let's form the habit of doing all we can to be QUALITY.
Best wishes for a great summer and beyond!
National Career and Technical Education Month
As part of recruiting efforts, programs setup booths for students to ask questions. New recruits are often impressed with the skills their peers have learned. This is an engineering student, Celeste Allen, showing a prosthetic arm that was created in their 3D printing lab with a CAD system.

Jadan Polenski, an Information Technology student, shows off our newest program.
Theresa Bethel, a Sports Medicine student, tells recruits about rehabilitation skills that Mr. Maskew has taught her this year.
Dr. Pierce and Ms. Noonkester conducted annual tours for 9th graders. Students visited each of our ten CTE programs, and they saw the classrooms and labs. Dr. Evans explained to students what Construction Trade and the Electrical programs' curriculum entails, and current students demonstrated to their peers the skills they gained from being in this program. Students asked questions and gathered information so that they can make an informed decision in regard to their career pathway. Also, students are encouraged to pursue any career that they choose regardless of gender.
