Don't be a statistic!

Every year, drunk driving accounts for more than 100,000 deaths per year. Broken down, that's 29 people per day dying of DUI related deaths. Or one person every 50 minutes. (Source:

And here's the really scary part...high school teens are estimated to drink and drive more than 2 million times a month. What’s more, teenage drunk drivers are responsible for 17 percent of fatal alcohol-related crashes. This is even though only 10 percent of licensed drivers are under 21.

Meet Kianna Ladue, our May Alumni. She graduated in 2020 and is currently in the Honors Program at Norwich University!

Here is what Kianna has to say about CTE...

The Center for Technology, Essex wasn’t just a school to me, but a home as well. Before

enrolling I struggled with confidence and was blind to my own potential. From the first day of

class I felt welcomed into the CTE community, which allowed me to excel in my work and enjoy

the projects assigned in all of my courses. Without the support and help from the CTE community and staff, I would not have furthered my academic studies or be where I am today. I am forever grateful to the wonderful people who have encouraged and supported me and the amazing community and environment unique to CTE.
