February is National Career and Technical Education (CTE) month and we give thanks to all of our technology teachers and students at Goldendale High School to learn more skills and better themselves. These CTE teachers show us how to expand our minds so one day we can use these skills in college and the world of business.

On Thursday, Feb.11, there was a super star pizza party held for the outstanding students that the CTE teachers selected. Mr. Wing donated all of the pizza for the party for the CTE Super Stars, which the teachers thought had really improved. There were more than 60 students invited to the special lunch. At the pizza party everyone had a good time eating pizza and cookies and drinking milk and tea.

Our CTE teachers are Terry Nickels, who teachers agriscience, which also includes metal work and horticulture; Matt Merfeld, who teaches robotics, engineering, and some more technological classes; Laurie Wilhite, who teaches journalism, international business, photography and video design, graphic arts and accounting; Rebecca Bare, who teaches family and consumer sciences, which includes foods, parenting, applied psychology; Rob Wing, who teaches digital communications and business English. Those are all of our CTE teachers who we should give a thanks to when we see them.

All of the CTE teachers work hard and give a 110 percent every day to make sure our students have a new job skill that will help them in the future. Our technology skills will help us on our job applications. Having a CTE class on your transcript can also help you get into a better college. We need to appreciate all of our CTE teachers because they are taking our education to a higher level.
