Lake Region State College Celebrates CTE

Erin Wood

DEVILS LAKE - Each February the nation celebrates Career and Technical Education or CTE.

Lake Region State College usually holds an in-person CTE Day. With this year’s COVID guidelines that event is being placed in a virtual format and is scheduled for later this semester.

Career and technical education, or CTE, is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management and many more, as described in the national Career Clusters® sheets.
Campus visits are taking place now with COVID-appropriate protocols. Appointments on programs also can be scheduled via technology.  For more information on LRSC’s CTE programs or virtual CTE Day, contact the college at 701.662.1514.
