In honor of National Career Development Month, on Friday, November 4 at Scotland High School, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers and students held a CTE Showcase. It was an opportunity to “show off” what they do in CTE courses and it was also a chance for the 8th and 9th graders that attended to learn more about the CTE course offerings available at the high school. School counselors, GEAR Up staff, and several college representatives were on-hand to also explain to students how the CTE courses that you take in high school can better prepare you for college and career.
