CTE Month 2017, with its tagline of "Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow!" provides an opportunity to inform others of the innovation and excellence that exists within our local CTE programs. As well as, raise awareness of the crucial role that CTE plays in helping our students to become college and career ready in preparation for high-wage, high-demand career fields.
