February is Alabama Career Technical Education Month


Last Thursday in celebration of Alabama Career Technical Education Month at the monthly Luncheon for Leeds Area Chamber of Commerce, Shannon Logan and Russ Cofield spoke about the growth of CTE (Career and Technical Education) programs and craft training in Leeds High School. Shannon Logan is the health sciences teacher at LHS, and is also the sponsor for HOSA-Future Health Professionals. Leeds High School offers classes like Foundations of Health, Human Body Structures, Anatomy, and PCT (Patient Care Tech) training and certification. PCT certification allows for a student to get a job immediately after high school. PCTs check blood pressure, heart rate, monitor food intake, and a variety of other skills that they all learn in the classroom. Read full article
