Students and faculty at Early County High School joined others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate accomplishments in Career, Technical and Agricultural Education. This year’s tagline is Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow! CTAE month provides CTAE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTAE makes students college- and careerready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields. In the classroom, students gain skills by completing career pathways.

Completing career pathways in high school allows students an opportunity to explore career areas and develop employability skills. ECHS currently offers courses in 13 pathway areas. These pathways include advanced accounting, automobile maintenance and light repair, business and technology, carpentry, early childhood care and education, engineering drafting and design, forestry/wildlife systems, JROTC-Army, nutrition and food science, plant and landscape systems, therapeutic services-emergency medical responder, therapeutic services patient care, and welding. The therapeutic services pathways are also dual enrollment programs in conjunction with Bainbridge State College. Students who complete these pathways are eligible to sit for state boards and become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

Students who are completing a pathway at ECHS during the current school year will be recognized at the end of this month. If you would like to learn more about CTAE at ECHS, contact Dr. Shanice Richardson at the high school.
