They’re future financiers, entrepreneurs, and tech titans. They want to save lives and safeguard our data, protect our country and tell compelling stories. A group of 23 students from the district’s high schools and special technical education programs were recently honored as the district’s top career and technical education (CTE) students. Collectively, the 23 honorees have taken 176 college-level courses (Advanced Placement or Dual Enrollment) and a total of 103 CTE classes. Despite taking a course load with high academic rigor, four students sport a GPA of 4.0 and 10 students have a 3.8 GPA or higher.
To be considered for Student of the Year honors and scholarships, nominated students submitted a transcript, a letter of recommendation from their nominating teacher, information on co-curricular participation in Career and Technical Student Organizations, highlights of their community service, and an essay. An interview conducted by a panel of judges from business and industry rounded out the selection process.
