“We must provide the young people in our community with opportunities to succeed. Graduating students from high school with the necessary education and experience to immediately thrive in the workforce serves not only the student and eventually their families, but also fills a vital role in the future success of our local businesses and industry. Obtaining college degrees is the path for some, but many will choose to immediately join the workforce. We need these young people today, now. Providing our high schools with a strong Carrier and Technical Education (CTE) program insures that every student has ready access to a brighter future while simultaneously filling the needs of business and industry. With these imperatives in mind, I adamantly support the opportunities provided to high school students by a strong CTE program.”
