CTE Success Stories

“The CTE classes I have taken have helped me decide that I want to pursue a career in construction. Because of my construction class I have learned so many valuable skills in building and interacting with others. The class also helped me get concurrent enrollment [credit] to help me get my degree faster. I love to work with my hands and my mind. The thrill of when a project comes together is the best feeling I have ever had.” — Jeb Price
