Career and Technical Education at Hazlehurst has busy semester

LEARNING – Jordyn Harper is learning about electrical circuits from teacher Earl Smith in a recent class.

The second nine weeks was just as busy as the first nine weeks in the Career and Technical Education Department of Hazlehurst High School.  Students were busy mastering objectives and being involved in various activities.

Many exciting guest speakers came to visit our students in the Walter Washington Vocational Complex. Donte Jones with MCEC/Families First did a presentation on internet safety and cyber bullying to the STEM students. LaShannon Butler, of Catholic Charities presented a unit on Safe Dating to the Family & Consumer Science students.  Students competed in a competition, designing T-shirts, posters and brochures about safe dating. Students in Carpentry/Construction built a 10×12 storage building complete with wiring. On Nov. 9, Monique Shannon Collins and Deonte’ Mazie, from Shannon’s Hair Creations, came to discuss entrepreneurship with the Business Fundamentals and Marketing classes.
