Floresville Independent School District Interim Superintendent Sherri Bays and high school Principal Sandra Galinzoga signed a proclamation declaring Feb. 3-7 as FHS CTE Week. Career and Technical Education student officers and leaders representing BPA, FCCLA, FFA, and SkillsUSA gathered for the signing.

The highlight of CTE Week was the annual Career and Technical Education Career Day on Feb. 5. High school students visited with more than 60 representatives in various careers. Students also interacted with guest speaker Aric Bostic as he talked to them about how to “get fired up” in continuing their education and preparing for future careers.

The month of February is celebrated across the country as CTE Month. Career and Technical Education aims at getting students to be college and career ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields.

Career and Technical Education encompasses 94 percent of high school students and 13 million postsecondary students in the United States and includes high schools, career centers, community and technical colleges, four-year universities, and more. CTE is a major part of the solution to myriad national economic and work-force problems, such as high school dropout rates, a weakened economy, global competitiveness, and massive layoffs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one-third of the fastest growing occupations will require an associate degree or a postsecondary vocational certificate. At a time when job opportunity is so critical, CTE programs in every community are ensuring students are adequately equipped with the skills to successfully enter the work force.

Floresville High School students have opportunities in agriculture, business and finance, family consumer science, including culinary, industry, and manufacturing in auto and welding, arts, technologies, and audio video production. During the month, Career and Technical student organizations at FHS will compete and participate in leadership and competitions in BPA, FFA, and SkillsUSA.
