Suffolk Public School’s Career and Technical Education
Advisory (CTE) Council held its Twelfth Annual Professional Student Conference, February 20, 2020.  The Conference is designed specifically for Suffolk Public School’s ninth graders as a catalyst in the selection of career pathway options, early in heir high school academics and career studies. 

Conference Presenters, comprised of staff from The College and Career Academy at Pruden (CCAP) Timothy Doughty, EMT Instructor, Chef Maia Jones, Culinary Arts Instructor, Yvette Edwards Brown, Game Design and Development Instructor, and Mona Parker, School Counselor. Paul Ruppert, EMT Program Director from Paul D. Camp Community College also attended to assist with CCAP’s EMT program.  They were tasked with introducing student to program offerings at CCAP, enhancing their knowledge, as it relates to expectations in the workplace, and providing opportunities for students to identify a career focus.

The students were professionally dressed, attentive, and engaged. They came in ready for action and it was directly reflected in their enthusiasm demonstrated in each session! Kudos to Mr. Andre Skinner, and the CTE Advisor Council!
