Career Technical Education (CTE) Month is coming to a close, however CTE students are confidently looking toward the months and years ahead. Taylor D. Sarman, National President of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA)â€“Phi Beta Lambda, in particular, says his CTE experiences has allowed him to develop the knowledge and skills to take on the upcoming challenges of the quick-moving, ever-changing world.
â€œThrough FBLA and CTE, my confidence level exploded, my work ethic prospered, and my understanding of the world around meâ€”and how I could contribute to itâ€”has advanced by leaps and bounds,â€ said Sarman in a recent blog. â€œCTE and FBLA forever changed my life and continue to give me the skills to develop with new changes in my life.â€
â€œIn a world where change is the only constant, students who are enrolled in CTE courses and involved in Career a Technical Student Organizations (CTSOC) are fully prepared to tackle any challenge that presents itself,â€ he added.
At a time when our nationâ€™s leaders are searching for solutions to address education and workforce issues, it is critical that the CTE community share positive experiences that shed light on the value of CTE. For CTE Month, take the time to tell your CTE story. FBLA is collecting CTE student stories, e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ and support CTE.
