Lockhart ISD Career and Technical Education Coordinator Rachel Sotelo noted at Caldwell County Commissioners Court Tuesday morning that 92 percent of Lockhart High School students take one or more CTE classes to aid with their college and career readiness.

LISD Superintendent Mark Estrada said those numbers were something to be celebrated.

Several students also addressed Commissioners, telling their courses and pathways in CTE. They included Blayn Hernandez (Collision), Charles Wilson (CCMA), Guadalupe Arzate Rodriguez (Pharm Tech), Peyton Crabill (Education), Jayden Kimball (FFA), Franzica Garcia (Culinary), and Aliza Salazar (Culinary).

The LHS Culinary students made treats that were presented to Commissioners.

 A proclamation was read by Caldwell County Attorney Chase Goetz designating February as Career and Technical Education Month.

Caldwell County Chief of Emergency Management, Hector Rangel, said he had seen some of the lowest fire possibility numbers “in a long, long time” due to the recent rains, which were expected to continue for the next several days. Therefore, the burn ban remains off in Caldwell County.
