‘State of Education’ program to highlight CTE

This year’s theme is “Enumclaw School District’s Got Talent.”

The evening of Thursday, Jan. 23, will bring the 2020 installment of Enumclaw Superintendent Mike Nelson’s “State of Education” address.

In keeping with recent tradition, there will be effort to keep things a bit light. Two years ago, the night featured a “Tonight Show” format and last year’s event was entitled “Mr. Nelson’s Neighborhood.” This time around, the theme is “Enumclaw School District’s Got Talent,” a takeoff on the television program “America’s Got Talent.”

Thursday’s focus will be on Enumclaw High School’s Career and Technical Education offerings. Nelson said the district has discovered many of its citizens don’t understand the full breadth of the CTE program, which is active at both the middle school and high school level.

Nelson will facilitate Thursday’s gathering, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the EHS auditorium. Also participating will by Kim Herd, an assistant principal at the high school and CTE director, along with EHS Principal Phil Engebretsen.

The six program offerings under the CTE umbrella will be discussed. Here are the six, along with the teachers who will be presenting.

• Family and Consumer Science: Cynthia Lang and Raeann Webb.

• Ag Science: Mark Berryhill and Kaitlin Norton.

• Skilled and Technical Trades: Bob Kilmer.

• Health Services: Allison Abrahamse and Rob Lightbody.

• Business and Marketing: Cynthia Lang (with student Charlie Crawford).

• STEM (science, technology, engineering and math): middle school teachers Terese Nowlin and Sophia Pham.
