Students and faculty at EHS will join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month. This year's theme is Celebrate CTE Superheroes!

Additionally other programs are offered at the Northern Neck Technical Center. For questions regarding CTE, pleasee see your guidance counselor or Mrs. Henderson.
