February is Career and Technical Education Month in Alabama. According to the Labor Monthly Review, nearly one-third of America’s fastest-growing occupations and careers will require a postsecondary degree and specialized credential. Many of these credentials are offered in one of the 12 Career Tech programs within Winston County Schools. The skills that Alabama’s students are learning in career tech are a great start for their futures. For more information about CTE Month activities in our community, call 205 489-2121

The following activities are taking place as part of Career and Technical Education Month:
- Job Shadowing
