Yesterday morning, the new Tennessee Commissioner of Education, Penny Schwinn, visited Northwest High School for her third day on the job. Schwinn had the opportunity to visit students and teachers in various Career Technical Education (CTE) courses, including Veterinary and Animal Science, Collision Repair Technology, Automotive Maintenance and Light Repair, and classes within the Northwest Health Science Academy.
In the coming days, weeks, and months, Commissioner Schwinn will be visiting schools across the state to meet teachers, leaders, CTE educators, school counselors, and students. CMCSS was honored to host Schwinn’s first high school visit since she was recently appointed by Governor Lee.
Northwest is proud to offer 11 different CTE programs of study to engage students’ interests and meet local industry demands. Across the district’s seven traditional high schools, CMCSS offers 28 different CTE programs of study and eight college- and career-aligned Academies of CMCSS.
