American Heart Association Advocacy Days
North East ISD had the opportunity to participate in the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Advocacy Days on Dec. 10, 2012, and Jan. 30, 2013. NEISD’s CPR, First Aid, and AED student-instruction program is being spotlighted by AHA in an effort to support their hands-only CPR, First Aid & AED instruction as a high school graduation requirement.
Three, Johnson High School volleyball players who were involved in an incident during a football game this past fall, were able to utilize their training to help save a life. The student-athletes and their coach, Nicole Blakeman, joined Rachel Naylor on January 30 to share their story with legislators at the State Capitol. They were later recognized at the Go Red Luncheon on Friday, February 1, 2013.
Career and Technical Education Month
February 1 - 28, 2013, has been designated Career and Technical Education month by the National Association for Career and Technical Education.
Career and Technical Education prepares students for a wide range of careers, from automotive technicians to engineers, culinary chefs to nursing, veterinarians to electricians and many other fields. These careers may require varying levels of education – from high school to two and four-year college degrees and/or career specific certifications or licensures. Career and Technical Education students are prepared to be part of a well-educated workforce. Through cooperative efforts between the Career and Technical Program and business and industry, students seeking lifelong skills are being prepared for career fields to stimulate the growth and vitality of our local workforce and economy.
Students from Roosevelt High School's EMT program were on hand to help with the proclamation.
