BHHS Celebrates Student Achievements in Career Technical Education

Beverly Hills High School hosted its first annual Career Technical Education (CTE) Recognition Breakfast on April 17 to honor students who have successfully completed a rigorous three-course sequence in their chosen Career Pathway. The event was led by Dr. Dustin Seemann, Assistant Superintendent of Education Services, Cindy Dubin, Career Education Coordinator, and Drew Stewart, BHHS Principal as well as the CTE Teachers at BHHS. 

The 80 students honored at the event participated in Career Pathways that included the Medical Science Academy, Audio Production, Broadcast Journalism (KBEV), Business, Robotics (Engineering), Fashion, Theatre Tech, and Culinary Arts. Each pathway is designed to provide students with hands-on, “real life” experience through an introductory course, a concentrator course, and a culminating capstone course.

Industry pathway teachers sharedremarks about their 2024 Outstanding Students and noted how the CTE pathways open excellent college opportunities for students, including students accepted to pathway-related programs including Fashion at Parsons NY, Leadership and Public Affairs at Claremont McKenna College, Mechanical Engineering at Cal Poly Pomona, Aerospace at USC, Neuroscience at Brandeis, Food Studies and Culinary at Drexel, Food Studies and Nutrition at Syracuse, Bioinformatics at UCSD, Finance at Wisconsin and IU, Neuroscience and Medicine, Health, Society Honors Program at Vanderbilt, and a myriad of programs at Yale, UPenn, Vanderbilt, UC Berkeley, Pomona, UCLA, LMU, and many more.

Special recognition was given to three community members who have shown exceptional dedication to the CTE Advisory Council, demonstrating their long-standing commitment to the development of the program and the success of its students. The honorees were Karla Gordy Bristol, Jennifer Okhovat, and Franny Rennie.
