As a way to celebrate the excellence of Cobb students, educators, and community partners, Cobb Schools recently hosted the second annual Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) Awards Night at McEachern High School.
“Students have earned industry credentials, completed Youth Apprenticeships and have won honors in their Career and Technical Student Organizations and JROTC teams. We are truly thankful for the devoted service of our community supporters and the impact they have made toward improving CTAE programs,” said Jackie Brown, Cobb Schools CTAE supervisor.
Large movie-style posters highlighted the CTAE Students of the Year. Of those students, Kendall Flores of Sprayberry High School was named the District’s CTAE High School Student of the Year. Campbell Middle School’s Robert Hoeh took home the title of Middle School CTAE Student of the Year.
The Youth Apprenticeship Student of the Year Award went to Erin Ojeda of Campbell High School.
The outstanding CTAE students were not the only ones who were recognized. Awards also went to the High School and Middle School Teachers of the Year: Michael Barcarse, North Cobb High School; and Janice Gatewood, Awtrey Middle School.
The Evening of Excellence also thanked CTAE’s community partners with the CTAE Post-Secondary Partner of the Year honoring Georgia Trade School, and the CTAE Industry Partner of the Year Award paying tribute to Cobb EMC.
