Career and Technical Education

Henrietta Jutson, CTE instructor at Jack Britt High School was recently awarded $50,000 from Harbor Freight to use in Jack Britt’s integrated system technology program.   The award was presented on October 24th in a surprise ceremony in the school’s auditorium. It will provide opportunities for students to study and learn technical design, engineering concepts, and skills needed to compete in a global job market.  “I’m feeling pretty elated,” said Jutson. “I’m feeling pretty good. I am looking forward to purchasing some new things for the students so we can move a little bit further in the field of technology.”

Mrs. Jutson was among fifteen second-place nationwide winners of Harbor Freight’s Tools for Schools Prize for Teaching Excellence. She was chosen out of 750 applicants in 49 states and more than $1 million in total awarded.  The Prize for Teaching Excellence was established in 2017 by Harbor Freight Tools Founder, Eric Smidt, to advance skilled trades education in public school.

Jack Britt High School has great things happening in the integrated systems technology program and IST Academy of Engineering.
