Johnathan Dolan (l) and Craig Wensel (r), adult students in the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center’s (CCCTC) Carpentry and Building Construction program, are shown with their completed one-half scale stairs project. Students need to use precise measurements to get accurate results, especially when building full-size stairs. This skill was an early challenge for students in the program, and the skills they obtained during the stair project will pay off for more challenging projects throughout the year.

Students and faculty at CCCTC will join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate “National Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month.” CTE Month provides programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE makes students college-and career-ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand occupation fields.
