At this month’s chamber luncheon, chamber members were once again treated to an informative program on Deer Park High School’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program. District Superintendent and Chamber Board member Travis Hanson led the discussion by providing an overview of the school’s diverse career training curriculum. After lunch, chamber members and guests were taken on student-led guided tours to see and hear for themselves how CTE programs are impacting the lives of our local students and preparing them for the future.
Deer Park High School’s Career and Technical Education Program trains students for careers in a number of subject areas including graphic design, wood and metalworking, engineering, media production, communication technology/information technology, business, agriculture, as well as bio-medical/forensic science. These courses are academically rigorous and provide students with not only the fundamental skills that are required for post-secondary admission but also the technical skills that will prepare them for successful careers in the highly technical, global economy. Whether a student is going straight to work after high school, to a two-year or four-year college, or a trade school, students will earn responsible work ethic and skills to guide them to success in their future.
January’s luncheon was sponsored by Sodexo, the school district’s partner in Food and Nutrition Services. Many thanks to Sodexo for their generous and tasty contribution.
