Mayor William E. Cooper Monday proclaimed February ‘Career and Technical Education Month’ in the City of Enterprise.
In front of a handful of Enterprise students, Mayor Cooper signed the proclamation in City Council Chambers.
“Career and technical education programs in the Enterprise City Schools System have become a rigorous, progressive, and vital part of the total educational system,” Cooper said. “These programs provide students with opportunities to gain invaluable hands-on experience.”
Cooper said that two out of every three high school students in Alabama participate in a career and technical education program.
“The Enterprise City Schools System has shown a genuine commitment to preparing students for their lives after high school by providing them opportunities to earn advanced diplomas, explore their individual career options, and receive college credit,” Cooper said.
Those students on hand for the proclamation signing included representatives from SkillsUSA, ROTC, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Technology Student Association (TSA), and Co-op.
