The Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers went mobile during County-wide Professional Development Day August 16, 2018.  CTE teachers boarded charter buses taking them to various industries in the Cumberland County region.  They traveled to McCormick Farms,  Barnhill Contracting,  City of Fayetteville, Cross Creek Mall,  SRAHEC, Public Works Commission and the Crown Complex.  The tours provided valuable lessons for teachers to take back to their classrooms, as well as connections for career shadowing speakers and internships for students.

The FCCLA State Leadership Conference was held April 9-11, 2018 in Greensboro, North Carolina.   The Douglas Byrd Chapter of FCCLA is proud to announce another successful year!   The students did a great job!  Check them out below!

 

Terry Sanford High School students also competed at the FCCLA State Conference.  The students focused on events that highlighted the work of their school chapter and community, and they did a wonderful job sharing that information! Every student and/or team earned a GOLD and were selected to represent North Carolina at the FCCLA National Conference.

 

Let’s wish all our schools (Douglas Byrd High, South View High, Gray’s Creek High and Terry Sanford High) much success at the FCCLA National Competition in Atlanta, Georgia this summer!

SVHS, Chef Payne Miles

Chef Payne Miles

On Friday, March 9th, Chef Payne Miles from Johnson & Wales University spoke to the Culinary Arts students at South View High School.  He encouraged the students to pursue a career they love and is passionate about.  At Johnson & Wales, students are allowed to dive right into what they love during their first semester.  Students learn real world experiences that mirror the workplace and develop valuable analytical and communication skills needed to manage complex situations.

Chef Miles explained to the students the admission process, how to apply for financial aid, campus living, and the various majors offered at the university.  The students were very interactive with the speaker by asking questions such as “What is an acceptable SAT score for the university?’ and “Are there internship opportunities for students?”

Chef Miles prepared a crispy fried rice with pickling onions and cucumbers which were cooked in various spices.  Chef Miles told the students, “This is one of my wife’s (who is from Jamaica) favorite dishes.”   The students loved it!

There are many benefits of work-based learning for young people and the employer.  Our youth use internships to determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, and to gain valuable work experience.  From an employer perspective, the commitment to hire one youth creates an opportunity to prepare and train future employees, improve employee retention and increase employer visibility in education.  A healthy, well-trained workforce is the most valuable asset at any company, and by hiring our youth, you will be planting seeds for future employees loyal to your company.  Business partners who would like to host an intern should use the following link to complete the  Worksite Request Form 2018

SFCMS DECA Team

Seventy-First Classical Middle School, DECA Team

Twenty-one seventh and eighth grade students from Seventy-First Classical Middle School (SFCMS) participated in the statewide DECA (i.e., Distributive Education Clubs of America) competition in Greensboro, North Carolina on March 8 and 9, 2018. They were the only middle school students to participate in this competition against approximately 3,700 high school students from across the state. DECA aims to support and enrich the education experience of students who are interested in careers in the business, finance, hospitality, and marketing sales and service industries.

Three SFCMS students were Series Finalists and received medals in their categories as follows: Asia Murchison – Principles of Business Management, Claudette Hosenbackez – Principles of Hospitality and Tourism, and Arianna Herring – Principles of Marketing.

Under the guidance of CTE Teachers, Sharon Peterson and Denise McAlister, SFCMS DECA was awarded a “North Carolina DECA Chapter of Distinction,” an honor that few chapters receive.  SFCMS is the only middle school in North Carolina with a DECA chapter.   Visit their webpage to read more!

Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow

February 1-28, 2018 is National Career and Technical Education Month. This year’s theme is  “Celebrate Today, Own Tomorrow.”

Cumberland County Schools, along with local business partners and community organizations, are celebrating CTE Month with a variety of activities promoting CTE programs to include displays, community speakers, field trips, contests, and career fairs. Students are able to put the skills they have learned in the classroom into practice in the community. Health Science classes host blood drives and blood pressure checks, Culinary Arts classes host cafés, and Criminal Justice classes host mock trials.

Career and Technical Education courses provide students practical hands-on experience while incorporating meaningful applications of reading, writing, and mathematics. Participation in Career and Technical Student Organizations, (FBLA, HOSA, FCCLA, FFA, DECA, SkillsUSA, and TSA) affords students leadership opportunities while directly engaging them in their local communities.

We are ready to embrace this opportunity to educate students, parents and the community about all of the services and benefits offered by the CTE programs in our secondary schools. Contact the CTE Facilitator in your high school to find out more about local CTE events in your area.
