Fluvanna Shines a Light on Career and Technical Education

Categories: Fluvanna County, Workforce Readiness and Career & Technical Education | 2016

Description:

Fluvanna County High School welcomed community members for Career & Technical Education (CTE) Open House Night. Participants had the opportunity to meet with CTE teachers, visit classrooms, and see the state of the art equipment that students use in these programs. Students served as tour guides for participants about the courses offered, industry credentials, and asked “R U College and Career Ready?” The programs included: Health and Medical Sciences, Cosmetology and Barbering, Agriculture, Carpentry, TV Production, Engineering, Computer Science, Business and Information Systems, Culinary Arts, and Marketing. Each station included “Did you know?” facts about the program highlighting program successes. Students offered a glimpse into the CTE experience by passing out samples of biscuits, demonstrating the plasma cutter by creating Flying Flucos, and stepping into another world in the TV studio green screen. Over 150 community members attended the event. Participants were repeatedly heard saying, “This is amazing!”
