FEBRUARY IS CTE MONTH

CTE MONTH

Hello, my name is Jeff Blythe.  I am the principal at the Monroe County Area Technology Center.  Throughout the month of February, our nation celebrates Career and Technical Education.  Here at the Monroe County ATC, we have a lot to celebrate and a lot to be thankful for.  We have eleven amazing staff members who serve over 420 unbelievably talented students from the Metcalfe and Monroe County High Schools.  Students may choose pathways in the areas of Automotive Technology, Construction Carpentry, Electrical Technology, Welding Technology, Wood Manufacturing, Health Sciences, and Business Education.

The Monroe County Area Technology Center provides classes and opportunities for the most amazing group of students in the world.  Our students are enrolled in classes at the ATC because they have a genuine interest in the career paths they are pursuing.  Likewise, we are blessed with instructors who are not only certified to teach, but who come to us from career and industry backgrounds.  This fact means a lot to our students, who know that their teachers have lived the lessons they teach them each day.

The Monroe County Area Technology Center has the most supportive business, industry, professional, and community-based support system there is.  Every decision we make at our ATC is in response to student and community needs and based on recommendations and feedback from our stakeholders, steering committee, and advisory councils.

We thank all of Metcalfe and Monroe County for the unbelievable support of the Monroe County Area Technology Center, our staff, and especially in the support of our Amazing students.  Happy, Happy CTE Month!

-Jeff Blythe
