4-29-22 — 73 Olathe Students Named CTE Scholars

April 29, 2022 ~ Out of the 140 Kansas Career and Technical Education (CTE) Scholars named by the Kansas State Department of Education, 73 of those seniors go to Olathe Public Schools. Olathe Public Schools had the most CTE scholars out of any district in the state of Kansas. Additionally, this is the most CTE scholars that the district has ever had.

“This recognition boosts a student’s resume as it showcases their commitment to community service, the development of high-level skills in a pathway, and the growth of employability skills through work-based learning experiences,” Career Pathway Facilitator Kimberly Sterne said.

The Kansas CTE Scholar program is an opportunity to recognize well-rounded outstanding CTE students who are finishing their senior year of high school. Students must have received or be receiving 3.0 or more CTE credits with verification of technical skill attainment, senior-level status, a CTE GPA of 3.5 or better, civic engagement or 100 community service hours, workplace experience, and have submitted a career vision summary statement.

These students not only receive state recognition, a commemorative pin, and a special certificate, but will receive a full-ride scholarship to attend Johnson County Community College for two years, which covers tuition and books. Every student was surprised in their CTE class with a presentation check and more information about the award. Congratulations to these Olathe CTE scholars:
