Students Experience a Fashion Symposium

The CTE departments of Marketing and FACS collaborated with Fisher Budd Ventures/RVA Fashion Week to create a Fashion Symposium for HCPS students!  The Fashion Symposium was designed for students who have expressed a strong interest in or exhibited talent in the fashion industry such as entrepreneurship, clothing design, hair, photography, modeling, production, and much more! There were speakers and projects throughout the day for the students.  The day concluded with a Trash Bag Challenge where student teams designed and produced outfits made from trash bags and duct tape and were judged with a fashion show event. All the teams had a fun time and worked extremely hard on their fashion projects. For more photos click here to view Facebook post.

2023 Career Rodeo

What is a Career Rodeo? Most know what a career day is. Businesses set up tables and students come and meet with businesses they have questions about. Our “Career Rodeo” is where businesses come and meet students and see them demonstrating their skills, ask the students questions and collect resumes or even interview students on the spot. We had over 250 business and community leaders meet with over 350 students and over 440 resumes were handed out to businesses. Here is a quote from one of our businesses who met with students: “Did you meet any great students today” His reply, “are you kidding? I must have a hundred numbers written down. I don’t know how I am going to keep track of them.” Here is a link to some pictures of our event. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=henricocte&set=a.906404510801460

It’s CTE Month!

February is CTE Month and Henrico CTE is going to celebrate!

Animals are part of the family for many people. Just like humans, animals get sick and need assistance getting back to a healthy condition.  Veterinary professionals provide invaluable service by ensuring that our beloved animals stay happy and healthy. 

Veterinarian assistants typically need a high school diploma or equivalent. Most employers prefer prior experience with animals. Most veterinarian assistants and laboratory animal caretakers receive on-the-job training for their specific duties. Earning a Vet Science certification is a fantastic way to get started.

A Vet Science certification is a great steppingstone to going to getting a job and preparing to go to college to become a vet and the Vet Science program at the ACE Center at Hermitage is a great 2-year program to start your education and hands-on training before you head to college to get your vet education.
