Many schools give athletes an opportunity to be recognized for their hard work when they are signed on to play at a university. Timpview High School wanted this same recognition for students who worked hard in their CTE classes and and were able to be placed in a job
CTE stands for Career Technical Education and encompasses everything from auto shop to business management. They are classes designed to teach practical skills that can be used in the work force. Six students were recognized today for completing certifications and meeting various company qualifications for hiring. In this event they were “singing on” to work at these companies.
Before the actual signing happened, the school’s principal, Dr. Montero, recognized each student individually for their achievements. He recognized students in the culinary arts program who were hired by Zupa’s corporate office, others who worked in the auto shop and were hired as a mechanic and other students who studied in CTE classes to be able to work in a specific field. After Dr. Montero was finished with his speech, the students got out their pens to sign the contracts with their employers. They then took some pictures and went back to finish off their school day.
The work needed to be able to be hired as a high school student can be daunting. These students put forth their best efforts in gaining the skills needed to work for these companies and wish them the best.
