Wyoming Dept. of Education highlights FFA & CTE classes

ยท March 26, 2019

Stacia Berry, Wyoming’s Deputy Director of the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, attributes her passion for agriculture to being raised on her family farm. However, when she was in high school, she didn’t think she was meant to follow her roots. Through her school’s Career and Technical Education classes and mentorship, she was able to follow her passion.ย 

Berry said, “I think it is important for students to understand that if you have interest in everything from broadcasting to science, there is a place in agriculture for you.”

Career and Technical Education allows for schools and students to specialize in the skilled trade, applied sciences, modern technologies, and career preparation. Many students who are involved in CTE classes are also involved in FFA. These hands on learning applications are vital for student development.ย
