The Department of Workforce and Career Development proudly recognizes students in the career and technical and JROTC courses for their outstanding achievements. We congratulate the faculties of our secondary schools for providing the leadership that distinguishes our department as a leader in the Commonwealth. This booklet of recognition is a chronology of student achievement, recognizing first-, second-, and third-place winners at the state, regional, and district levels and all place winners and participants at the national level. We salute the parents and teachers for making the school year a tremendous success in Career and Technical Education and JROTC.

As all of us at Henrico CTE are planning on the eventual return of students to the classroom, we want to remind parents, students, and business partners that our programs are more important than ever. With the new emphasis on “essential workers” in today’s world the “essential skills” and “essential careers” we provide we will be ready to ensure that Henrico students fulfill their educational goals so they are ready for the high demand careers waiting for them.
Please keep a watch on this website and through our social media venues as we work to get back to normal. In the meantime we are looking for new business partners, parents, and students who want to get involved with Henrico CTE to add to our already impressive list partners. Yes, we missed out on so many great events we had planned for students this school year but we are already looking to the future to make sure our next group of students get to participate in great events to show off their skills and work ethic. Please contact Mac Beaton, Director for Workforce and Career Development, William J. Crowder, Jr., Assistant Director for Workforce and Career Development, or Beverly Cocke, Workforce and Career Development Specialist if you want to get involved or just ask questions. We have had a great past but we will have an even greater future with Henrico CTE and Workforce and Career Development. Thank you.

Students from Glen Allen and Godwin High Schools’ marketing students participated in River City Consulting’s Battle of the Ads competition. River City Consulting describes the competition as follows: “River City Consulting’s Battle of the Ads is an advertising competition focused on educating high school students about the advertising industry, through real-world experience – before they begin college. Not only do the students gain valuable experience in advertising, marketing and graphic design, they also have to write, shoot and edit a 30-second TV commercial.”
In November our students submitted their commercials and RCC has posted the finalists on their website and they are asking for everyone’s help to decide the best commercial. Click here to watch the videos and how to vote for the best.
