Student Recognition:

The KS CTE Scholar recognition was awarded for the first time in 2017.  This annual award recognizes students who have indicated a well-rounded demonstration of knowledge and skill according to their experiences within career and technical education.  Achievement by senior students indicates academic achievement, CTE knowledge with excellence, community engagement through leadership demonstration, documentation of skill attainment and ability to verbal their career vision.  Those earning this status are listed by school year ending date.
