The Melissa City Council issued a proclamation on Tuesday, Jan. 22 declaring the month of February as Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in Melissa.
Mayor Reed Greer read the proclamation, which states that CTE programs “have become a rigorous, progressive and vital part of the total education system which is committed to providing students with rewarding opportunities to learn valuable career and life skills.”
Four CTE teachers from Melissa High School were in attendance to receive the proclamation: Chris Mueller, Amy Tyner, Hallie Venner, RN, and Doug Bingman. They were joined by Dr. Debi Crawford, Executive Director of Technology and HIRE Education.
Melissa Schools will celebrate CTE Month with the second annual Melissa STREAM Night on Thursday, Feb. 28 at North Creek Elementary, featuring numerous vendors and student groups representing the areas of science, technology, reading, engineering, art, and math (STREAM). Melissa STREAM Night is open to the community from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Ahead of that, the Melissa CTE program will have tables set up at the Melissa High School Academic Expo on Wednesday, Feb. 6, giving students and parents an opportunity to learn about the CTE courses being offered for the 2019-2020 school year. The Academic Expo will be open from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the high school gym.
