February is CTE Month!! Career and Technical education first officially began in 1917 with the Smith-Huges Act but vocational classes have been around long before when the workforce and the public school system began working together to combine hands-on learning with classroom instruction. Today there are endless CTE possibilities ranging from the healthcare industry, manufacturing, agriculture, public safety & law enforcement, STEM, business, financing, computers, and so much more. Throughout this month, Hyde County CTE will be showcasing its elite staff members and students!! Be on the lookout for updates and to see what cool things CTE students are doing in their classes.
