McCollum High School hosts CTE Night
Posted on 11/21/2019

McCollum High School hosted its annual Career and Technical Education (CTE) Night on Nov. 20 to give incoming freshman a glimpse of all the different CTE classes offered at their future school.

Students and families from Kingsborough Middle School and Terrell Wells Middle School stopped by informational tables to learn more about every course offered during their high school career. Featured courses included broadcast journalism, printing and imaging, auto technology, phlebotomy and culinary arts.

Current McCollum students were also encouraged to attend to learn more about the courses and different certifications available to them. Through the CTE program, high school students have the opportunity to obtain various certifications including Certified Pharmacy Technician, Automotive Service Excellence Certification and ServSafe® Food Handler Certification.

McCollum alumni from local business partners such as McDonald’s, Kens 5 and the City of San Antonio also joined the event to spread the word about their programs. 

“Our ultimate goal is to connect our students with the different careers available through CTE,” Harlandale ISD CTE Coordinator Tracy Anderson said. “We want to make sure they see that there are opportunities available and that whatever their passion may be, they can learn more about it, set up a foundation, and have a goal upon graduation.”

A second CTE Night is planned for Dec. 4 at Harlandale High School from 6–8 p.m. and all eighth grade students from Leal Middle School and Harlandale Middle School are encouraged to attend.

Parents who wish to learn more about their child’s high school CTE course offering are encouraged to call their campus counselor. For more information about the CTE program at Harlandale ISD, please call (210) 989-4401.
