February CTE Student of the Month
I would like to nominate Alex K., a student in Animal Science 2, for CTE Student of the Month for the month of February 2015. I have had the distinct pleasure of having Alex in class several times over the last couple of years. In my classes, Alex always displays respect for those around him, a commitment to a strong work ethic, and good leadership abilities. His grades in my classes have consistently been among the highest in those classes. His passion for agriculture, especially the poultry industry, is refreshing to see in students. His work ethic and leadership will serve him well in his future endeavors.
On behalf of the CTE Department, Mr. Calhoun would like to extend a big thank you to Parker Tie Co. and Mr. Rick Woodie, and DeWalt Tools for sponsoring the CTE Student of the Month at Ashe County High School.
