CTE’s Information Technology students are working as interns with the district I.T. Department to gain experience in the field under the direction of I.T. teacher Misty Estridge and CTE Director Christy Murray.

Seniors in the program are Jenson Higginbotham, Aaron Lopez, Isaac Saucedo, Jon Walls, Gabriel Delgadillo, Jesus Morales-Carranza, Brynn Brumley, Sergio Alamos, and Caleb McElroy Neal. Juniors in the program are Aiden Sayre, Isaiah Ates, Logan Sexton, Mathew Borja, Edgar Acosta, Jared Sanchez, and Alan Mondragon.

These students work in the I.T. building and their job duties include re-imaging laptops, completing technology job tickets assigned to the high school and junior high school, as well as delivering items and devices to teachers and staff.

“I will always remember this class and the information I learned, from Mr. Kennedy to Mrs. Estridge,” Higginbotham said. “We keep learning more and more about each other in the class and we keep growing stronger bonds with each other.”

CTE students also competed at the SkillsUSA contest on Thursday, Feb. 24th in Waco where they advanced to the state level. The SkillsUSA State competition will be held in Corpus Christi March 31st – April 2nd.
