Recently we had a visit from Annaleah Karron. She is an amazingly helpful person with so much knowledge about education and programs such as CTE and Middle College. Middle and High School students can benefit so very much with these programs. We have links for you available here. We strongly encourage you to view the videos for the benefit of your students.
