CTE is the acronym for Career and Technical Education.  CTE Week is celebrated nationally during the month of February.  One of the exciting aspects of CTE Week in Palm Beach County is the recognition of amazing students in specific areas of career education.  Each year, these bright students are honored at the January School Board meeting; this year, the CTE Students of the Year from area middle and high schools will be recognized at the January 18 meeting.  Palm Beach Lakes Community High School is proud to announce fourth year, Medical Academy student, Jonathan Watson, as its 2016-2017 CTE Student of the Year!

Jonathan has been a student in the Medical Academy for three years.  Each year he has demonstrated stellar academic achievement–all AP, AICE or Honors Classes, member of the National Honor Society and the National Technical Honor Society.  He is a certified Medical Administrative Assistant and Emergency Medical Technician. “JJ” is an officer in HOSA; he competed in Emergency Medical Responder at the 2015-2016 Regional and State Competitions. He works the academy’s Blood Drives and is the club Parliamentarian. He has also been the Five Carat Choice Program Student of Year for Medical Assisting and the Student of the Month for Pharmacy Technician. He aspires to become a cardiologist, but just recently, began thinking about getting a doctorate in pharmacy.

Congratulations, Jonathan!  It is, indeed, an honor well-deserved.
