Yuma Union High School District officials said the Career & Technical Education, or CTE, program has long prioritized leadership for its students. Through a district-wide leadership initiative, training opportunities for students and staff who encourage student involvement, CTE has increased the leadership skills of thousands of students over time.
The 2019-2020 school year marks an unprecedented time for YUHSD CTE leadership. Eleven students enter the new academic year holding state or national officer positions in their respective Career & Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs). It’s the most at any one time in YUHSD history.
