Preparing tomorrow’s workforce today



Dr. Alicia Finnell, CTAE (Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education) Director at Washington-Wilkes Comprehensive High School, told the Washington Rotary Club about the program’s “pathways” which prepare students for specific careers, and she also described the Work-Based Learning program which offers selected students the opportunity to hold internships in local businesses. She explained that students enrolled in CTAE programs learn the foundational knowledge and skills required to prepare for a wide range of careers. She added that the graduation rate for CTAE students is almost 95 percent. The “pathways” available to students include Health Science, Education and Training, Information Technology, Business Management and Administration, and Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources. Sherri Bailey was the program host.
