Olympia's Career and Techincal Education (CTE) Department will be celebrating our CTE students during February's CTE Month. Each Friday in February a student enrolled in a CTE course will be honored. CTE will also be sponsoring games for the Olympia students to play during lunch time on Fridays. The CTE departments at Olympia include Agriculture (Mr. Hoffman), Art (Mrs. Pitcher), Business/Computers (Mrs. Nehls and Mrs. Schroeder), Family and Consumer Science (Mrs. Goff and Ms. Kirby), and Industrial Technology (Mr. Thomas). This week's CTE Students of the Month were nominated by the Business Department - Lucas Lawless and Jason Schulz. Lucas and Jason are taking Personalized Career Skills and Computer Technology and Programming, Mrs. Nehls stated that she appreciates the good work ethic and respect Lucas and Jason show every day.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, many of the fastest-growing jobs through 2024 will be in CTE fields. Many of the highest-paid jobs are aslo in fields for which CTE prepares students, including health care, energy, architecture, IT and marketing.
